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.
