The mechanism about the entry of coronavirus into the nose, invade in CNS through olfactory bulb while nasal infection which leads to cause demyelination and inflammation, Further it reaches to the whole brain via Barrier of Blood-Brain and CSF via Blood-CSF barrier within 7 days which leads to respiratory disease due to the inability of air into the lungs as the defects in respiration controlled by the nervous system and patients show symptoms like neurologic signs.
