So...they took 100 patients, 17 of which underwent ventilation, which is known to cause cardiovascular problems, 16 of which had underlying heart
problems, found there was some small amount of acute myocardial inflammation in 60-70 of those patients, and only amongst ones that exhibit symptoms
according to the limitations of the study.
Now, as I understand it covid is a respiratory syndrome, your cardiovascular system is highly dependent on your respiratory system to function.
Reduced lung function is known to cause stress on the cardiovascular system. It would make sense that a supressed respiratory system would cause
inflammation and stress to the cardiovascular system, not because the virus is attacking It, but because the cardiovascular system is directly
affected by problems with the respiratory system, especially the heart. The discussion in the published article touches on this, the daily mail
article does not. It also fails to mention the small sample size of the study, or the limitations the authors themselves mention.
