Long COVID puts some people at higher risk of heart disease. They need better long-term monitoring, says researcher
Long COVID puts some people at higher risk of heart disease. They need better long-term monitoring, says researcher
"Lasting damage to the heart and brain is an aspect of long COVID that should receive much more attention than it has so far. We have sufficient evidence now to call for ongoing monitoring of individuals across the population..."

How COVID-19 permanently damages the heart
How COVID-19 permanently damages the heart
"...the ongoing inflammation in COVID-19 attacks the heart tissue and, in the long term, remodels the smallest coronary vessels by directing special precursor cells of the immune system from the blood into the heart."

Inflammation and vascular remodeling in COVID-19 hearts
Inflammation and vascular remodeling in COVID-19 hearts
"We conclude that cardiac involvement in COVID-19 is an angiocentric macrophage-driven inflammatory process, distinct from classical anti-viral inflammatory responses, and substantially underappreciated by conventional histopathologic analysis."

POST infection cardiovascular events are still occurring at significant rates. Even in the young AND with "mild" Omicron. Excess deaths in the USA have shown this for the ENTIRE pandemic (including pre-vaccine).
