Cardiovascular problems post-COVID are happening in unexpected groups

COVID and the Heart: It Spares No One

Research now tells us that COVID doesn’t discriminate when it comes to heart problems.

Case in point, a friend's daughter is a nurse working in a Morristown hospital. Two months ago she got over a COVID infection that was barely noticeable and was caught by a routine test at work. She now has unexplained bouts of sudden tachycardia, a flipped T-wave, and markedly high blood pressure. These episodes happen quickly and take upwards of 30 minutes to subside. Her doc at the urgent care she went to after her last one noted that they are seeing this in young people and they don't have a good handle on why. She also has fatigue that comes on after very little exertion and it is affecting her ability to be a nurse. This kid is 26. Even her colleagues are wondering why it is taking her so long to recover, not to mention her friends and family that aren’t medically trained.

Doesn't matter who you are or anything else. If you have ACE2 and there's a spike protein around this is what can happen.
