COVID-19 and Epilepsy

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time and the greatest challenge we have faced since World War Two. Since its emergence in Asia late last year, the virus has spread to every continent except Antarctica. There is no evidence that having epilepsy alone makes people more likely to catch coronavirus or have more severe symptoms.

However, epilepsy is a very varied condition. Some people with epilepsy have other conditions alongside their epilepsy, which may put them at increased risk. Anyone with a compromised immune system or on-going medical challenges may have a higher risk of complications. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has included epilepsy on a list of conditions that may increase the risk of serious COVID-19 infection, likely because it is a chronic neurological condition. The UK has included people with chronic neurological conditions (without specifying epilepsy) as an “at risk” group.
