Coronavirus can damage the heart, with more than half of hospitalised patients revealing abnormal scans, a major new study has found. A survey of 69 countries, funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), found that 55 per cent of 1,261 patients studied had abnormal changes to the way their heart was pumping, with around one in seven showing evidence of severe dysfunction. The majority (901 patients) had never been diagnosed with heart problems before, leading scientists to conclude that Covid-19 itself may seriously affect the heart. Among this group, heart scans were abnormal in 46 per cent of patients and 13 per cent had severe disease. Just over half of all the scans were performed in intensive care, with others carried out on general wards, heart and lung wards and in A&E.; The results follow a number of studies indicating that the virus can cause long-term damage to the brain. Dr Sonya Babu-Narayan, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation and a consultant cardiologist, said: "Severe Covid-19 illness can result in damage to the heart and circulatory system. "We urgently need to understand more about why this is happening so we can provide appropriate care – both short and long term. "This global study – carried out at the height of the pandemic – shows that we must be on the lookout for heart complications in people with Covid-19 so that we can adapt their treatment if needed." The study, published in the European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging, found the abnormalities were almost evenly split between the left and right chambers of the heart. Some three per cent of patients had suffered a recent heart attack, according to the scans. As a result of their scan, one third of patients had their treatment changed, including being given medicines for heart failure, or more careful control of fluids and therapy designed to support heart function. The study was carried out by researchers from the British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence at the University of Edinburgh. The team cautioned that the study cannot conclude how common heart changes are in people who did not receive scans. They stressed that all patients in the study were in hospital and had suspected heart complications. Professor Marc Dweck, who led the research, said: "Covid-19 is a complex, multi-system disease which can have profound effects on many parts of the body, including the heart. "Many doctors have been hesitant to order echocardiograms for patients with Covid-19 because it's an added procedure which involves close contact with patients. "Our work shows that these scans are important – they improved the treatment for a third of patients who received them. "Damage to the heart is known to occur in severe flu, but we were surprised to see so many patients with damage to their heart with Covid-19 and so many patients with severe dysfunction. "We now need to understand the exact mechanism of this damage, whether it is reversible and what the long-term consequences of Covid-19 infection are on the heart."
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) apparently hasn't been keeping a close eye on the news today.Sanders spoke to reporters in a post-Super Tuesday press conference on Wednesday afternoon, hours after former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he was bowing out of the 2020 race. But when a reporter asked Sanders for his thoughts, they evidently broke the news to him for the very first time. "Has he stepped out?" Sanders asked the reporter. "Well, that's the first I heard about that."Sanders went on to conclude that Bloomberg dropping out and throwing his support behind former Vice President Joe Biden is part of an effort to "stop Bernie Sanders," though he once again reiterated that this is "the first I've heard of what role Mayor Bloomberg will be playing." With this roughly four-hour delay between the Bloomberg news breaking and it making its way to Sanders, get ready for the senator's very delayed thoughts on No Time to Die's release date getting bumped sometime this evening. > Bernie Sanders surprised by news Michael Bloomberg suspending his presidential campaign this morning: "First I've heard about that."> > Asked what Bloomberg brought to the 2020 race, Sanders says, "He's certainly brought a lot of money into this race." https://t.co/Q3fPEwmdNX pic.twitter.com/1J5LCQR8qd> > — ABC News (@ABC) March 4, 2020More stories from theweek.com It's 2020 and women are exhausted Andrew Yang is launching a nonprofit to make universal basic income a reality Could Democrats win the battle against Trump but lose the war against Trumpism?
