    "What we know about how COVID-19 affects the heart, even after the virus is gone

    ...
    evidence mounts that the virus can cause long-lasting heart damage.

    A study published in late July found that, of 100 adults in Germany who had recently recovered from COVID-19, 60 showed signs of ongoing heart inflammation. MRI scans picked up other cardiac issues in another 18 recovered patients.

    The patients who were studied ranged in age from 45 to 53. Although one-third of the patients were hospitalized, none were deemed to have had severe COVID-19 symptoms.

    "What we might be seeing here is a widespread prevalence of heart disease in patients with COVID-19," Dr. Gavin Oudit, a professor of medicine at the University of Alberta and an expert on heart failure, said Wednesday on CTV's Your Morning.

    ...
    It isn't just the heart that can show lasting effects after COVID-19 infection, though.

    "In the heart, the virus' attack on ACE2 can lead to myocarditis – inflammation – as well as vascular dysfunction, Oudit said, which will make it important for doctors to monitor COVID-19 patients long after the virus has left their bodies.
