Specialist cardiology consultant Dr Iqbal Malik has been investigating the long-term health problems for patients who have contracted COVID-19.
As with many viral illnesses, some people will take months to recover – the post-viral phase can include:
- “Brain fog”
- Chest pain
There is supportive treatment that can help, and a specialist referral may be suggested depending on clinical findings. Patients will be referred to Cardiology if there is suspected myocardial infarction, pericarditis, myocarditis or new heart failure.
