***neuroCOVID Registry***

There is increasing interest in the neurological associations and complications with COVID-19. There is now, in many countries, a need to create a neuroCOVID registry.
In the UK, this process has involved the Association of British Neurologists in a project called CoroNerve. The aim is for people who are directly caring for these patients  to have a high index of suspicion for neurological complications and refer patients to their local neurologists, who can notify the ABN registry site.
