More than half of the recovered COVID-19 patients develop cardiac problems within a few months, Study reveals

The SARS-CoV-2 virus takes several paths to cause severe complications in one’s body and considered a mystery in the medical field. It is quite clear that the impact of COVID-19 lies far beyond the flu condition. Initially, it was considered a respiratory virus, but now the focus has changed due to multi-systemic involvement. Researchers still ponder and learn more things from the pandemic virus, although six months were over. They found that the virus can leave a cardiac problem once the patients have recovered completely.

The study

One study involved 100 recovered COVID-19 patients in Germany between the ages of 45 and 53. The majority of the affected people recovered at home, and only 33 people hospitalized. The doctors analyzed these 100 patients by using a cardiac MRIs and compared them with healthy people who did not contract the virus. They viewed that 78 patients had some morphological changes in their hearts, and 76 people had shown a biomarker similar in heart attack patients. Almost 60 people had myocarditis, but the patients were most healthy before their illness, researchers said. They even added that it was more surprising to see the intensity and prevalence of these findings even though the original illness had been a few weeks away.

Yet another study proved that there was an involvement of the heart in COVID-19 patients. This study looked into the autopsy report of 39 patients aged between 78 to 89 and had died of the disease. It suggested that more than 41 percent of the patient had shown heart lesions. Even the heart showed signs of viral replication, says the co-author Dirk Westermann. These two studies published in the journal JAMA Cardiology on Monday.

As these studies showed the involvement of the heart, we have to be more cautious to prevent the chance of getting the infection. Wear masks, follow the guidelines given by the doctors, and stay safe.
