For COVID-19 patients, widespread
reports of symptoms involving brain dysfunction include loss of
smell and memory.
MD, warned about this when he wrote,
"By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be
able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal
passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into

'Face Masks Pose Serious Risks
Ignorant critics and trolls lambasted Blaylock for being a
and an "idiot".
These would be the same fools who are wearing face
masks day-in and day-out, accumulating viral particles in their own
masks that are traveling into their own brain.
Wearing a mask for any extended period of time is dangerous to your
own health, period...
Technocrats who sparked these policies in the
first place are creating a health disaster far worse than a mere

How is Coronavirus Getting Into the Brain?
Recently, studies have been published suggesting a link between the
SARS-CoV-2 virus, brain inflammation and neurological dysfunction.
One study involving 60 patients who recovered from
example, found that 55 percent of them displayed "structural
changes" in the brain that manifested with,
loss of memory and smell
for three months...
The study, published in
The Lancet on Aug. 3,
2020, found evidence that the SARS-CoV virus had invaded the
olfactory epithelium - tissue within the human nasal cavity that play
a role in the ability to smell. 1 2
The encyclopedia Britannica describes the olfactory epithelium as
"olfactory receptor cells, which have specialized cilia
It explains that,
"the cilia trap odor molecules as they
pass across the epithelial surface" and that "[i]nformation about
the molecules is then transmitted from the receptors to the
olfactory bulb in the brain." 3
Studies Link SARS-CoV-2 to Changes in Brain
According to the results of The Lancet study,
volumes [of the SARS-CoV-2 virus] were observed in the bilateral
olfactory cortices, hippocampi, insulas, left Heschl's gyrus, left
Rolandic operculum and right cingulate gyrus" - "structures" that make
up the "central olfactory system."
However, the study was unable to
ascertain how the virus managed to infect the olfactory epithelium.
The study noted:
Several possible invasion routes of SARS-CoV-2 were raised including
hematogenous, lymphatic and neuro retrograde routes, etc., yet the
exact route was unknown. 1
In another study published in the journal
Brain on July 8, 2020,
researchers at University College London (UCL) examined 43 cases of
COVID-19 in which the patients suffered from a high incidence of
"acute disseminated encephalomyelitis" - severe brain inflammation.
This resulted in,
"temporary brain dysfunction, strokes, nerve damage
or other serious brain effects."
Nine of the patients were diagnosed
with a rare condition known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
Dr. Michael Zandi, a consulting neurologist at UCL's National
Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, said:
We're seeing things in the way COVID-19 affects the brain that we
haven't seen before with other viruses.
What we've seen with some of
these ADEMm patients, and in other patients, is you can have severe
neurology, you can be quite sick, but actually have trivial lung
disease. 6 7
In a report published in
The New England Journal of Medicine on Apr.
15, 2020, a team of physicians said they observed 58 hospitalized
COVID-19 patients in Strasbourg, France and found that 84 percent of
them had neurological symptoms, including,
agitation and confusion, and corticospinal tract signs" and also
"acute ischemic strokes." 8 9
Among all these studies, none has pinpointed just how the SARS-CoV-2
virus may have entered the brain.
One possible route, though, could
be the olfactory nerve in the nose, which is considered to be the
first cranial nerve or C1. It is one of 12 cranial nerves in the
The C1 leads into the olfactory epithelium and itsolfactory
receptors are located in the mucosa of the nasal cavity -
essentially your nose. 3 8
- Nose a "Shortcut" for Viruses Entering the Brain
In January 2015, a study titled "The olfactory nerve: a shortcut for
influenza and other viral diseases into the central nervous system"
was published in the journal Pathology. 9
That study found that…
Viral infection of the [central nervous system] can lead to damage
from infection of nerve cells per se, from the immune response, or
from a combination of both.
Clinical consequences range from nervous
dysfunction in the absence of histopathological changes to severe
meningoencephalitis and neurodegenerative disease. 9
The study listed viruses that can use the olfactory nerve as a
"shortcut" into the brain.
Viruses that enter the body through the
influenza A virus
paramyxoviruses (like RSV, measles, mumps)
West Nile virus
La Crosse virus
The 2015 Pathology study obviously made no mention of SARS-CoV-2
since that virus was not known then.
But if all those other viruses
can enter the brain via the nose and olfactory nerve, then,
not be possible for SARS-CoV-2 as well...?
Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, MD referenced the olfactory nerve as
a route into the brain in
a recent article in Technology News &
Citing a 1989 study the journal
Virology titled "Spread of a neurotropic murine coronavirus
into the [central nervous system] via the trigeminal and olfactory
nerves," 10 11 Dr. Blaylock wrote:
In most instances it
enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves),
which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with
recent memory and memory consolidation.
By wearing a mask,
the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will
concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves
and travel into the brain. 10
