The Corona epidemic exacerbated heart disease
SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes Covid-19. SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. Initially it was thought that the virus initially only affected the lungs, but now we know that there is hardly a part of the body that is not infected with the virus. New data from the United States show that the virus also affects the heart.
The Boston Red Sox are a major league baseball franchise. Eduardo Rodriguez was the league’s number one pitcher (the one who throws the ball in baseball is called a pitcher) but the 27-year-old baseball player tested positive for corona last July. Later, Corona’s symptoms subsided, but she began to feel very weak. He told reporters he felt a hundred years old. He said: “I have never been so sick in my whole life. I would never want to be so sick again. A few weeks later, his condition became such that he could only throw twenty pitches during practice and was so tired that His team stopped him from playing any more and sent him to rest.
Further investigation into his condition revealed that he had myocarditis and that it was caused by Corona. Myocarditis means inflammation of the heart muscle. Some patients don’t mind, but there are others for whom it can have serious implications. Eduardo Rodriguez is not the first player to suffer. Multiple college football players also contracted the disease, possibly due to code 19, and the entire college football landscape was in crisis. Eduardo Rodriguez has been so weakened by the disease that he may not be able to play baseball this season.
I recently treated a Corona patient who was just over fifty years old. He was completely healthy and had no serious illness, but when he developed a fever and his body began to ache, he locked himself in a room. But instead of recovering, his condition worsened and many gallons of fluid accumulated in his legs. When he was brought to the hospital, he was not breathing properly. It wasn’t because of his lungs, it was because of his heart. We are now examining her condition to determine if she needs a heart transplant.
A new study has been conducted in Germany on how V2 affects the heart. The details are coming out. Researchers studied 100 people with an average age of just 49 and who have recovered from code 19 disease. Most of them have no symptoms or, if any, mild ones.
On average, two months after the diagnosis, the researchers did an MRI scan of their hearts and found some frightening things. Eighty percent of them had permanent heart defects, while 60 percent had myocarditis. The severity of the initial disease cannot be determined by the severity of myocarditis.
Although there are some loopholes in the research conducted in this case, the significance of these discoveries cannot be said at present and it is not yet possible to say whether an opinion should be formed about it or not. But it is clear that young or young patients who have recovered from overcoming Stork Covey 2 may or may not have had their hearts affected by the disease. It could also be that what we are seeing is just the beginning of a heart attack.
Researchers are trying to find out how the virus caused heart disease. Is the heart directly affected by the virus or is it due to the toxic immune response that triggered the virus? The partial success in the treatment of Corona’s patient may be due to the use of anti-inflammatory drugs such as steroid dexamethasone to protect the heart from inflammatory damage. Such steroids are commonly used in cases such as myocarditis. But despite treatment, myocarditis caused by the corona virus can cause permanent damage to the heart, with the end result being that the heart stops working. But myocarditis is not the only disease caused by the corona virus and is the leading cause of death from heart disease. When I reviewed data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, I found that the number of Americans dying from heart disease since February this year was lower than the number of Americans dying from the same period last year. Twenty-five thousand more. Some of these deaths may have been caused by Corona, but most of the deaths were probably caused by patients paying attention to Corona’s disease but not paying attention to the heart. In the context of a global epidemic, this process can lead to untreated heart disease.
Understand why many patients are afraid to return to the clinic or hospital. It is estimated that people in the United States have reduced their risk of having a heart attack or stroke by seeking medical help or calling 911 to a lesser extent.
