"Blissful ignorance": the neuro-psychiatric effects of Covid

Talented lawyer Jo catches a severe form of Covid-19 but shows "blissful ignorance" of the disease: even lying in a hospital bed, his mind is on entirely trivial matters. His behaviour led to studies on the neuro-psychiatric manifestations of Covid-19. The virus attacks the brain, it is still not clear how, weakening patients who are overcome with depression just as they should be celebrating their recovery from the worst of the illness. 8 June 2020
