In recent years, there has been an alarming increase in the number of young people, including celebrities dying of sudden cardiac arrests.
Most of these people had no prior history of heart disease and were active and health-conscious.
Many have suspected COVID-19 for the rise in such deaths among young people.
According to cardiologists, the steep rise in people dying unexpectedly of heart attacks is alarming.
“Though we do not have sufficient data and evidence to prove whether this is a covid induced phenomenon, definitely this has increased post-COVID. Long-term COVID sequelae could possibly be responsible in some cases,” Dr Samir Kubba, Director-Cardiology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali, told IANS.
