Till now, most experts opined that Covid 19 virus primarily attacks the lungs and immobilises the respiratory system. But, latest revelations show that heart failure is one of the chief causes of Corona-related deaths. An estimated 40 per cent of the covid deaths are due to heart failure.
Significantly, the two recent deaths â€“ of Ravikumar and Sayyad, who complained of breathlessness before dying in the Chest Hospital â€“ too confirm this. The findings are also corroborated by the recent reports published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine. The reports say that the cholesterol deposits on the blood vessels of the Corona hit patients is causing heart strokes. They say that the Corona virus is speeding up the process of blood coagulation inside the blood vessels and leading to cardiac arrest.
Studies also show that there is a drug reaction between the medication given for Corona and the medicines given for Cardiac conditions. This too could cause deaths, experts warned.
