According to experts:

According to experts, coronavirus infection can lead to heart problems in patients-another accident of COVID-19.

The serious consequences have been highlighted by reports of such injuries among college football players.

On Thursday, Penn State University football team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli retracted previous comments that 30% to 35% of the top 10 football conference players with COVID-19 also have heart inflammation. , And told ESPN that the prevalence is actually low, about 15%.

The declining number has attracted a lot of attention, but epidemiologists are not surprised. For example, Mitchell Elkind, chairman of the American Heart Association at Columbia University, told BuzzFeed News that some of the COVID-19 patients hospitalized 20% to 30% appear to have symptoms of heart damage including myocarditis, and inflammation of the heart muscle caused by a virus.

Elkind said:

“Some of these long-term consequences of corona virus infections have only now attracted people’s attention, because enough time has passed to see them.” Especially in those who are still suffering from pandemic viruses. In the “long-term procrastination” patients with injury.

As of last Friday:

The United States has recorded more than 6.1 million COVID-19 cases and nearly 187,000 deaths, making it impossible for many long-term injured patients in recovery because the disease occurred in less than a year. Initially regarded as a respiratory disease, COVID-19 can also attack the heart, kidneys and brain, and cause blood clots and other long-term symptoms in some patients that are confusing.

Christof Burgstahler, a cardiologist at the German University Hospital and Tübingen Medical School, said: “It seems that the heart inflammation of COVID-19 is different from the typical myocarditis. It causes arrhythmia and breathing.

According to the American College of Cardiology, myocarditis increases the risk of sudden cardiac death in elite athletes explaining the concerns of the top ten football players, and a meeting last month canceled the fall football season.

Essentially:

 Football players and other patients will have to be monitored by doctors to check for signs of arrhythmia and blood markers that show signs of continuous damage to the heart muscle. Some patients with myocarditis require medication to maintain a regular heartbeat.
