It's not just the lungs that get severely affected in coronavirus disease patients but also the heart. According to a new study, as many of 78% of Covid-19 patients monitored developed a heart condition, independent of pre-existing conditions, the Hindustan Times has reported. Published in the journal ‘JAMA Cardiology’, the study also found that 60% of the Covid-19 patients had an ongoing swelling of heart muscles. Data from about 100 recovered patients from the University Hospital, Frankfurt’s Covid-19 registry between April and June 2020 was analysed for the study.
