It is well known that recovery from stroke takes a lot of time, discipline and effort from patients. It also requires a tremendous amount of human specialist involvement. Even before the COVID-19 virus had changed the world, the majority of stroke survivors worldwide were not able to receive stroke rehabilitation in sufficient amount. The reasons for that were multiple – there were simply never enough rehab facilities, beds in dedicated rehab centers, rehab specialists. Not to mention multiple social and functional barriers that kept patients away from stroke rehabilitation services. No surprise, results of stroke recovery are poor. 

And now this, when all non – essential travel has been restricted to the most of world’s population, where majority stroke survivors as high risk individuals are not able to access post stroke rehabilitation due to risk of catching Covid-19 virus, where they can’t even accept anyone coming to their own home without risking to be infected.
