The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the dynamics of health care once for all, and we have to continue to mount an unprecedented response to eventually defeat the novel virus pandemic. A wide range of neurological manifestations have been reported among pediatric and adult patients with COVID-19 infection both during and after the patient has recovered from the illness. In terms of preexisting neurological conditions, people with these illnesses are not only vulnerable to acquire the novel viral infection, but at the same time are prone to experience an exacerbation of their preexisting illnesses, and also have poor treatment outcomes, including death. To conclude, a wide range of acute and postacute neurological manifestations have been attributed to the COVID-19 infection worldwide. This calls for the need to create awareness among health-care professionals about neurological symptoms and complications in the post-COVID period.
