A New detected a virus called COVID-19 reported by World Health Organization (WHO) as pandemic at March 2020 COVID-19 is affected mainly by respiratory illness, but it can also affect the brain. Cerebrovascular disorders are recorded COVID-19 pandemics but are not effectively addressed how to deal and treat them. In this review, I try to discuss the postulated neuronal mechanisms of the coronavirus infection sequelae. After made midlines about this topic and collected more international papers. I discuss prevalence, pathogenesis, and then put a proposal on how to deal with Cerebrovascular disorders with COVID-19. Also, I discuss the protocol algorithm for anticoagulants in the COVID-19 era.
