Mental Wellbeing and Upper Respiratory Tract Virus Infections (URTIs): Implications for COVID -19

Andrew P. Smith

 

Abstract

This article briefly reviews evidence showing that reduced mental well-being is associated with a greater risk of infection from URTIs. It then reviews evidence showing that URTIs can influence the brain and behavior. A detailed bibliography provides information on the extensive literature on these topics. It is argued that both these areas of research are relevant to COVID-19 and the prevention and management of it.
