Patients cured of COVID-19 might suffer from cardiovascular diseases for a prolonged period of time.

There is insufficient evidence to know if patients cured of COVID-19 might suffer from cardiovascular diseases.

There is insufficient evidence to know if patients cured of COVID-19 might suffer from cardiovascular diseases.The novel coronavirus is primarily a respiratory disorder. Doctors say that the virus can cause many physiological manifestations in patients suffering from the disease. The impact of COVID-19 goes well beyond the lungs to impact the cardiovascular system and cause complications in the kidneys, brain, and other organs. The cardiac and vascular complications of COVID-19 was observed in the first six months of treating the new virus since the original outbreak in China, first reported in December 2019. Vikramjit Mukherjee, M.D., an expert doctor at Bellevue Hospital Center, said that this disease is manifesting every week and will change again in the weeks and months to come. Initial reports focused on the respiratory effects of COVID-19, such as pneumonia and difficulty breathing. But more recent literature has described serious cardiovascular complications occurring in about 10% to 20% of hospitalized patients.

However, there is no detailed study conducted on the cardiovascular effect of COVID-19 in patients who have been cured of the disease.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
