Literature Search Strategy and Selection Criteria

Studies were selected from the peer-reviewed literature using NCBI and Google Scholar. We searched the databases using the following keywords: central and peripheral nervous systems, COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, coronavirus, stroke, encephalopathy, neurocognitive impairment, hypercoagulability, encephalitis, neurologic infection, seizure and neuroinflammation. We also reviewed bibliographies of relevant articles. Non-peer-reviewed studies and single case reports were not included as references unless they were highly informative.
