Warping the 21st century into an intangible reality is the SARS-CoV-2 triggered COVID-19 pandemic. With its myriad presentations and indefinite modes of management, it continues to confound the world with an unparalleled medical, societal, and economic crisis [1,2]. Attracting particular attention is the way SARS-CoV-2 affects the human brain. With newer clinical and pre-clinical data revealing that the virus doesn’t restrict itself to just the respiratory, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems, and well surpasses into the nervous system; various conjectural hypotheses have arisen [3]. Occurring independent of and unrelated to other systems, the Central Nervous System (CNS) implications are seen in almost 20-70% of the infected patients [4]. The evident neurotropism and neuro-invasion further complicates the already disruptive pandemic. How does the SARS-CoV-2 enter the brain? How does it infect the neurons? What is its contribution to the pathophysiology of the presentation of COVID-19 infection? Is it relevant to the present situation? And most protuberantly, what will the sequelae comprise?
