The risk of heart disease is no longer limited to problems that occur with aging. The risk of this disease is also increasing in people below 30 years of age. According to a report, cases of death due to cardiac arrest and heart attack have also been recorded among school children.
Recently, many people died of heart attacks while playing Garba during the Navratri festival in Gujarat. After this accident, Gujarat State Health Minister Hrishikesh Patel held a meeting with medical experts including ‘cardiologists’. In the meeting, it was asked to find out the causes and treatment of heart attacks.
Heart attack cases have increased rapidly after the Corona period. The reason for this has been known. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya has attributed the increasing cases of heart attacks in the country to Coronavirus. He said that people who were infected with COVID-19 are at risk of heart attack and cardiac arrest. Mandaviya’s statement made it clear that the coronavirus is the major reason for the increase in heart attack cases.
Clot formation is a side effect of coronavirus
A study by the Indian Council of Medical Sciences (ICMR) claimed that people who were severely infected with the COVID-19 virus have a higher risk of heart disease. Such people were advised not to exert themselves excessively for one or two years to avoid heart attacks.
According to a report, heart attack cases increased after the Corona epidemic. During the examination of these patients, it was found that due to Coronavirus, blood clots had formed in the arteries of the heart. Due to clots, the heart has difficulty pumping blood, which leads to a heart attack. The side effect of coronavirus is a major reason for clot formation.
Corona affects the heart and lungs
To find out the causes of heart attacks, researchers examined more than 100 people who died of heart attacks. It was found that most of the heart attack victims had contracted the infection during the pandemic. The dead victims’ MRIs revealed heart-lung issues caused by the coronavirus. Coronavirus has been linked to an increase in heart issues in previous research.
Signs of heart attack
Chest pain, restlessness, pain in the left side of the body, back, shoulder, neck, jaw, and stomach along with difficulty in breathing are some of the symptoms of a heart attack. If you see such problems, you should pay serious attention.
Get your heart checked
According to research, people who recovered from COVID-19 a year ago may be at risk of cerebrovascular complications, heart rate irregularities, inflammation, or ischemic heart disease. In such a situation, even if you have only mild symptoms during the infection, still get your heart checked as a precautionary measure and keep taking measures to keep your heart healthy regularly.
