Research sheds light on cardiac pathology mechanisms of COVID-19

Researchers compared cardiac autopsy samples from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) positive cases with age-matched samples from influenza hemagglutinin 1 neuraminidase 1 (H1N1) cases, non-influenza lymphocytic myocarditis cases, and heart tissue with no inflammation to understand the mechanisms underlying the pathology of the cardiac complications during coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
