“In the last two years there has been a 29.6 percent increase in fatal heart attacks in the age group of 25 to 45 years. The fatal heart attacks occur 10 times more frequently in those who did not need hospitalization for severe Covid complications while they occurred nearly 100 times more frequently in those who needed admission to ICU for Covid complications.”

On the other hand modifiable risk factors like smoking, obesity, alcohol abuse, addictions, dietary irregularities, stress, high blood pressure, high sugar levels as well as cholesterol play vital additive roles also.
