Chinese teen has suffered a stroke after non-stop gaming for a month during the COVID-19 pandemic, AsiaOne reported.

Once at home during the quarantine, Xiaobin stopped leaving the room and locked the door and windows. The parents thought he was doing his homework, however, the teen was playing computer games all the time.

He suffered an ischemic stroke due to malnutrition and lack of sleep for a month. As it turned out later, Xiaobin slept only 1-2 hours a day and played the rest of the time - 22 hours a day.

Now the teenager is undergoing rehabilitation as he had lost control of his entire left arm.
