We read with great interest the article "COVID-19: what if the brain had a role in causing the deaths?" by Tassorelli and co-workers, in which the authors generate and summarize hypotheses how SARS-CoV-2 may enter the peripheral and central nervous system and cause life-threatening complications [1]. With this letter we would like to contribute to this discussion by highlighting how different complications of COVID-19 may result in damage to central and peripheral parts of the swallowing network leading to dysphagia in critically ill COVID-survivors.
