People hospitalized with COVID-19 are highly likely to experience neurologic symptoms and are at higher risk of in-hospital mortality.
Why this matters
There are increasing reports of neurologic manifestations in COVID-19 but comprehensive data are lacking. This is the first and largest global study of neurologic manifestations in people hospitalized with COVID-19 across cohorts and continents.
These important findings highlight the very high prevalence of neurologic manifestations and associated risk of premature death in people hospitalized with COVID-19.
