The current COVID pandemic has been a life altering and history- changing event worldwide and has had massive repercussions in patient life and medical sciences. The WHO estimates that millions of people have been affected by the pandemic and deaths will eventually range in the hundreds of thousands and potentially exceed a million. While respiratory failure is the overwhelming concern in these COVID patients, medical providers have noted that many comorbidities have complicated medical care and worsened outcomes in these patients. Seizures and epilepsy represent common comorbidities in these patients due to their high burden in the general population and special attention has been paid to their interactions with the COVID pandemic.
