Interaction between cardiovascular diseases and Covid-19.

Clinical studies have reported an association between COVID-19 and cardiovascular disease. Pre-existing disorder seems to be linked with worse outcomes and increased risk of death in patients with COVID-19, whereas COVID-19 itself also can induce myocardial injury, arrhythmia, acute coronary syndrome and venous thromboembolism. Potential drug-disease interactions affecting patients with COVID-19 and comorbid cardiovascular diseases also are becoming a significant concern. In this Review, we summarize the present understanding of COVID-19 entering in to the host cell from basic mechanisms to clinical perspectives, that specialize in the interaction between COVID-19 and therefore the circulatory and respiratory system.
