COVID-19 can cause lasting cardiovascular damage, study shows

A study, published Monday in JAMA Cardiology, of 100 recovered coronavirus patients reveals 78 of them now have lasting cardiovascular damage. 28 of them required oxygen supplementation while fighting the virus, while just two were on ventilators. Of the 78, 60 show ’ongoing myocardial inflammation’. These conditions appeared to be independent of case severity and pre-existing conditions.

Which is why I don't care if my personal likelihood to survive this virus is 99.xx% it's what kind of debilitating chronic conditions will I be left with for the rest of my life. Also the blood clots this causes. I am very curious if this can cause aneurysms or DVT/ pulmonary embolisms. Also your T-cells are a primary differentiator in how well someone does with covid.

Seems plausible given the nature of the virus, but a 100 person study is rather small.
