Heart health is set to become a more significant health issue in the coming months and years.

Although cardiovascular diseases are a common condition in the UK, one study has revealed Covid will likely drive cases up further.

Published in the journal Nature Medicine and lead by Doctor Ziyad Al-Aly, the study found, say the BMJ that: “Those who had had COVID-19 had a 72 percent increased risk of heart failure, 63 percent increased risk of heart attack, and 52 percent increased risk of stroke compared with controls.”

Researchers wrote the risks “were evident regardless of age, race, sex, and other cardiovascular risk factors, including obesity, hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and hyperlipidaemia”.
