This case report depicts the unusual malady presentation of COVID-19 related onset schizophrenia on a Hispanic 55 year old male. Before seeing this case, the typical neurological symptoms of the COVID-19 virus were known to be anosmia, muscle tremors, dizziness, and confusion. Therefore, because of this strange presentation of the virus and a COVID vaccine still beyond reach, alarm has arisen for the future of neuro-typical minds who succumb to the virus’ life threatening symptoms. The patient in this report suffered from spontaneous psychosis and delirium following their diagnosis with the coronavirus disease, and subsequently was diagnosed with schizophrenia, an incurable mental disorder. Living with this ailment has given rise to medicinal and therapeutic management to control the symptoms, but the disorder remains chronic. To understand patients like him, it is important to understand the effects the COVID virus has on the neuro-psychiatric balance, so there is room to create special precaution in its treatment and overall awareness.
