'significant' changes to the brain
Researchers from the University of Oxford, University College London, Imperial College London and the National Institutes of Health have found the virus reduces grey matter thickness in parts of the brain associated with smell and memory.
A 1.3 to 1.8 per cent loss was recorded.
They also found tissue damage had occurred in parts of the brain associated with the olfactory cortex — an area linked to smell — along with shrinkage of the whole brain itself.
