Increase in risk of pre-existing heart conditions

Around 20% of the people suffering with covid-19 develop severe symptoms and complications that increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

On the off chance that blood oxygen levels are influenced and drop so low that the heart muscle is done getting adequate oxygen from the lungs, further harm to the heart happens.
