Can covid19 cause myocardial infaraction and other heart problems?
I have seen in recent reports locally as well as globally that there were covid19 patients who passed away but due to reasons not relating to Covid. Some due to myocardial infaraction and other heart related problems. Since the Sars-cov2 is a coronavirus, just like a cold virus, is there any possibility that it can cause myocarditis/endocarditis, resulting in 'sudden deaths'? Can there also be possibilities that this virus c an stress the heart in its function to pump and supply blood and oxygen to other parts of the organs, so much so that it actually causes the heart to 'overwork' in those with pre existing illnesses such as myocardial infaractions? Can the virus also cause neurological deficits or infections such as meningitis, resulting in deaths but not directly linked to the virus itself?
