Long Covid-19 and its impact on the heart

The long Covid-19 has manifested a higher-than-normal incidence of irregular heartbeats, inflammation of heart muscles, and increased rate of thromboembolism in those who suffered from Covid-19. The cases of irregular heartbeat and inflammation are very high when compared to those before Covid-19. Those in the young and productive age group of 25 to 35 years are reporting to hospitals with symptoms. Chief scientist of the World Health Organization Dr. Soumya Swaminathan has stated that post-Covid, countries need to prepare for a larger incidence of cardiovascular, neurological, and mental health disorders. This analysis is based on post-Covid admissions in different hospitals, both private and government, in the country.
