A study by American scientists confirmed that the emerging coronavirus, after attacking the lungs, goes to the heart muscle, and it can be damaged even in individuals who do not have any underlying heart disease.
The Sun newspaper published a report on the important study which revealed that Covid-19 can have severe consequences for individuals, who suffer from pre-existing cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure.
Dr. Muhammad Majeed, head of the scientific group that conducted the study and assistant professor of cardiology at the College of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston, stressed that even in the absence of past heart diseases, the heart muscle can be affected by the Corona virus, but of course the effect is greater for those who already suffer Of heart problems.
The worst global crisis since the end of the Second World War
The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, considered Wednesday that the Covid-19 pandemic is the worst global crisis since the end of the Second World War 75 years ago, expressing his concern that its repercussions will fuel conflicts and wars in the world.
In an interview with a number of media outlets, Guterres said that the new Corona virus that appeared in China at the end of last year and an impossible global epidemic was “the worst global crisis since the founding of the United Nations” in 1945.
He explained that the reason for this is that this pandemic “brings together two elements: the first is that it is a disease that poses a threat to everyone in the world, and the second is that its economic impact will lead to a recession that we may have never seen before.”
“The combination of these two elements and the risk of deep disturbances, increased violence and escalating conflicts are matters that make us believe that this is indeed the most difficult crisis that we face since the Second World War,” he added.
The Secretary-General stressed that this crisis requires solidarity from all mankind and set aside differences. “We need a stronger and more effective response that can only be achieved if we all stand together, forget the political games, and realize that all of humanity is at stake,” he said.
