Findings From "Mini-brain" Study Suggest SARS-CoV-2 Can Infect Human Brain Cells

'Mini-brain' bioengineered from human stem cells. The ball is about one third of a millimeter and contains about 30,000 cells. The cell nuclei are blue. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is stained red, indicating that a small fraction of brain cells carries a large number of virus particles. This means that virus has multiplied in infected cells.
