The covid virus is linked with headaches & an altered mental status in hospitalized kids. This is according to a new study from UPMC.

Of hospitalized children who tested positive (or were presumed positive) for covid 44% developed neurological symptoms.

These kids were also more likely to require intensive care than their peers who did not experience those symptoms.

The new study is led by a pediatrician scientist at UPMC and Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

The researchers recruited 30 pediatric critical care centers around the world for the study.
