One of the most common but dangerous heart condition affecting most individuals who had come into contact with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is a condition called myocarditis.
 
Myocarditis, also known as inflammatory cardiomyopathy, is inflammation of the heart muscle. It is a type of heart disease that usually causes no symptoms, but it can be life-threatening. Myocarditis gets its name because the middle layer of the heart muscle is called the myocardium. "Myo" means muscle "card" means heart "itis" means infection or inflammation, i.e., inflammation/infection of the muscle wall of the heart.
 
The incidence rate of myocarditis is of great concern to many medical researchers and doctors. In one study involving COVID-19 recovered healthcare staff, it was found that about 39 percent had myocarditis. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/breaking-covid-19-news-study-shows-39-percent-of-covid-19-recovered-healthcare-workers-developed-pericarditis-or-and-myocarditis-10-weeks-later-when-e
 
A German study published in the JAMA journal showed that up to 78 percent of recovered COVID-19 patients had developed myocarditis! https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamacardiology/fullarticle/2768916
 
There are numerous studies showing varied incidence rates but it is now generally assumed that between 78 to 85 percent of all recovered COVID-19 patients could be having myocarditis and majority do not even know that they are having this dangerous condition that might heal by itself or maybe simply deteriorate further, putting them at a high risk of mortality!
 
Now considering that to date we have almost 37 million people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 globally according to official figures from John Hopkins as of the 9th of October. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html and millions more asymptomatic individuals who have never been tested walking around plus even more scary is that the WHO (World Health Organization)is now saying that up to 10 percent of the world’s population is most probably  already infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus or about  760 million individuals, we do not only have a COVID-19 pandemic at hand but a serious global heart disease crisis! https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/covid-19-may-have-infected-10-percent-world-s-population-n1242118
 
Even before the COVID-19 global pandemic made its debut from China, myocarditis was responsible for 45% of heart transplants in the United States each year!
 
Many ask is myocarditis a heart attack? No, but it can sometimes lead to one. Symptoms of myocarditis, when they do o
