During this last time we have had to learn and investigate this new strain of coronavirus, which not only affects the respiratory tract, but also produces a systemic affection of different organs through diffuse endothellopathy and a severe systemic inflammatory response. In relation to the affection of the central nervous system, there is a direct relationship or neurotropism, through the receptors of the type 2 angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE2). This review tries to explain the neurological relationship and SARS-COV 2.
