Researchers have made a new disclosure about the SARS-CoV-2 virus that spreads COVID-19 infection. Research on the corona virus conducted at the University of Maryland has found that this virus damages the heart muscle of corona-infected people.
The infected are at risk of heart-related disease
According to scientists, the risk of heart muscle inflammation in people COVID-19 lasts for at least 1 year. At the same time, he says that there is also a risk of heart attack among the infected. Let us inform that scientists have made rapid vaccines to reduce the severity of COVID-19 disease. But these vaccines fail to protect against heart diseases caused by the corona virus.
SARS-CoV-2 effect on the lines of HIV and Zika
Jay Han, a specialist in the corona epidemic, said that in order to treat the infected in the long run, we must first understand the cause of the disease. He said that research shows that the proteins of SARS-CoV-2 damage the heart muscle by affecting it. The same happens with other viruses such as HIV and Zika. During the research, the team of scientists found that the 2 DG drug is causing less damage to the heart muscle. The researchers said the 2DG drug is inexpensive and is routinely used in the lab. He said that the US administration has not given permission for the use of 2DG for treatment, but the trial of this drug is going on in India for the treatment of COVID-19.
Soon there will be a ray of hope
Mark Gladwin, Vice President of Medical Affairs at the University of Maryland, said that many people in the US are suffering from heart diseases weeks and months after being infected with the corona. He said that this is a serious problem and it is very important to deal with it. Researchers said that in the coming days, more information will be revealed on the effect of COVID-19 disease on the heart soon. Researchers hope that the treatment of diseases caused by corona virus will also be found soon.
