Snippet from FEMERAID International Air Rescue as of 24 November 2022
The Air Rescue Team of FEMERAID International informs all our members, Knights and Dames of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Federation of the Autonomous Priories (KMFAP) about the followings:

A study published this week in the journal Neurology concluded that nearly 1 in 100 people infected with COVID-19 developed epilepsy or seizures within 6 months of getting sick, particularly in children.

This study evaluated two groups – the first infected with COVID-19 and the second infected with the flu. Each group had 152,754 people who were followed for 6 months. Those in the COVID-19 group were 55% more likely to develop epilepsy or seizures during this time than those in the flu group, and in the COVID-19 group the incidence of epilepsy or seizures was 0.94%, compared to 0.60% for flu patients.

Among children, the incidence was 1.34% in COVID-19 patients and 0.69% in flu patients. We must prevent the spread of COVID-19 at all costs.

 Keep safe and healthy.
