Abstract

The COVID-19 illness trajectory involves persistent cardio-renal inflammation, activation of the haemostatic pathway and lung involvement. Results of a study carried out by the authors' team demonstrate a link between post-COVID-19 syndrome (people who have long COVID) and multisystem disease, which partly explains the lingering impairments in patient-reported health-related quality of life, physical function and psychological wellbeing after COVID-19. This article discusses what hospital physicians need to be aware of when considering the likelihood of myocarditis in patients with post-COVID-19 syndrome and the implications in the longer term.
