Researchers at the Rhine-Westphalian Technical University in Germany and the Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands said that coronavirus infection, entering the kidneys, provokes scarring. The research results are published in the journal Cell Steam Cell.

Specialists have grown kidney tissue from stem cells and infected them with coronavirus. Once in the artificial kidney, the pathogen caused scarring.

It is noted that the results of the study may explain the decrease in kidney function, which was observed in 90 thousand infected in the United States.

Earlier, scientists from the California National Research Center for Primates (USA) and the Rotman Research Institute in Toronto (Canada) found that when it enters the brain through the nose, the coronavirus causes symptoms such as memory problems, impaired coordination and “fog in the head “. Observations of rhesus monkeys have shown that symptoms of damage to brain neurons in them appear seven days after infection. This is most often seen in older animals with diabetes.
