Brain microhemorrhages might be due to COVID-19

Note this is a pre-print article: Neuropathology and Virus in Brain of SARS-CoV-2 Infected Non-Human Primates | Research Square

Here, we show for the first time, microhemorrhages and neuropathology that is consistent with hypoxic injury in SARS-CoV-2 infected non-human primates (NHPs). Importantly, this was seen among infected animals that did not develop severe respiratory disease.
