Abstract
COVID-19 patients are at a higher risk of stroke. This observation is in apparent contradiction with the reduced number of stroke patient admissions during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, seen worldwide. The SARS-CoV-2 can affect the endothelium, favour a procoagulant state and involves the heart, leading to an increased risk of developing a stroke. The pandemic and confinement influence the behaviour of the population, perhaps more reticent to contact emergency departments flooded with COVID-19 patients and likely to have modified levels of stress. In addition, it was shown that confinement during the pandemic reduced air pollution, thought to affect stroke risk. These indirect effects of SARS-CoV-2 probably also impact the number of hospital admissions for stroke. These different aspects are presented here as a controversy.
