This could play a role. However, there is more to MAO-B inhibition than simply elevation of PEA / dopamine. I don't pretend to understand it all myself, but there is a (perhaps bidirectional) interaction between MAO-B and inflammation / neuroprotective factors. MAO-B inhibitors likely don't prevent one from contracting COVID (again, not sure), but *may* reduce some of the deleterious neurological effects (again, just speculation at this point).
