Smoking can affect the vascular system in the brain and that’s why the researchers decided to review the evidence on how this activity might affect the neurological symptoms of people who contract the novel coronavirus.

The researchers analyzed a couple of studies the first of which showed that 36.4% of COVID-19 patients had neurological symptoms, while another found 5 cases of a sudden stroke in patients with COVID-19 aged between 30 and 40 due to abnormal clotting in the large arteries.

The scientists explain that this may happen because the body is deprived of oxygen during smoking and the number of clotting factors in the blood rises.
