    This is a totally bogus article.
    “…. people who get infected with COVID-19 …..”MAY”….. have serious cardiovascular complications and even end up with harmed cardiovascular health due to some possible treatments of the coronavirus disease.”
    “May” … “some” …. “possible” …. this article is total BS. No specifics. No statistics. Just speculation.

      Thank you for your feedback and your opinion. First of all, this article is not intended to provide statistics and is not scientific, rather general overview of the possible complications for people who are not medical professionals. Second, at this point it is hard to estimate the prevalence of COVID-19 complications and their origin as the disease has just emerged, therefore, it is impossible to provide accurate assessment.
