SARS-CoV-2 attacks the heart

Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany
A study of patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and healthy controls showed that inflammation and cardiac myocyte‐specific microRNAs (miRs) were upregulated in critically ill COVID‐19 patients. Importantly, miR profiles were able to differentiate between severely ill, mechanically‐ventilated Influenza-associated acute respiratory distress syndrome (Influenza‐ARDS) and COVID‐19 patients, indicating a rather specific response and cardiac involvement of COVID‐19.
