Abebaw Bekele Seyoum*, Tinsaye Zergaw Shihur, Bisrat Kassa Getahun, Yohannes Bayou Tilahun

COVID-19 is reported to have a wide variety of presentations and one of those is new onset stroke. Patients are presenting with neurological deficit features and the affected areas of the brain are different. Here, we presented three cases of new onset strokes in confirmed COVID-19 patients from Ethiopia, along with their laboratory and imaging findings. These patients had separate clinical and imaging findings, which goes in line with other studies globally. This calls for further study and investigation on the topic.
