Another rider with a brain bleed

I know they said Juan Matute's was congenital, but this seems too coincidental considering they are finding Covid 19 causes strokes. (I don't know which face makes the scary/worried look.)

In reading the comments, it's the 4th person in dressage with a brain bleed. I know these two were supposed to have some background of issues with this, but I don't know. Maybe the connection is that people who have possible issues already are a lot more likely to be affected because of Covid.

Sounds like he had an aneurysm from that article. I think COVID is more related to clotting, so ischaemic strokes rather than haemorrhagic but it will be interesting to see the full impact of COVID over time.
