The COVID-19 pandemic is not only about the early stages of infection, mild or severe, but also about the side effects that many people experience. Now, a new study suggests that people who have had a coronavirus infection, even when it was very mild, are at increased risk of developing heart problems in the future.
Research from Johns Hopkins University in the US claims that no one is safe from this side effect. The findings were shared by epidemiologist Eric Feigl-Ding via Twitter on Monday. The study, which was published last month, found that people who had covid disease were more likely to develop heart-related issues, including swelling, clotting, irregular bleeding, even a year after their covid-19 recovery. Heart palpitations are included. It added that even relatively healthy people are at risk.
“It spares no one”—NEW @johnshopkins Evidence has shown that anyone infected with COVID is at greater risk for heart problems – clotting, swelling, arrhythmias – a risk that persists even in **relatively healthy people** long after the illness has passed.

The research, conducted by Dr Ziyad Al-Ali, director of the Center for Clinical Epidemiology, said the findings were surprising because the risk of heart problems was seen even in people who had only mild symptoms and did not require hospitalization due to COVID. Was. -19.
This is counterproductive, as the researchers expected that people who suffer from heart or kidney disease, diabetes, smokers and those with certain other risk factors would be at higher risk. However, the researchers found that people with no heart problems, those who were athletic, did not have a high BMI, were not obese, did not smoke, and did not suffer from kidney disease or diabetes and those without any heart risk factors. were affected. The risk of heart problems manifested by COVID-19 in a way” compared to those who did not catch COVID.
Researchers found evidence of an increased risk of “stroke, blood clots affecting the legs and lungs, heart failure and heart attack.”

The major study that involved 11 million people in the US, including 10 percent women, 20 percent black and mostly white men, looked at the risk “across the board.” “It really spared no one,” Dr. Al-Aly said.
