Study into long-term impact of COVID-19 on stroke



The Stroke Association is funding the world’s first study to determine the long-term impact of COVID-19 on stroke survivors.

Since the start of the pandemic there have been widespread reports of adults with the virus also having strokes. There have also been concerns that the virus may be causing more severe strokes.

The Stroke Association is funding this research to investigate the difference the virus could make to stroke recoveries, which are already at risk due to disruption to stroke services caused by the pandemic.

The study will establish how differences in patients with and without the virus may influence their needs for treatment and care, including how to avoid the risk of having further strokes.
