The race to understand the impact of Covid-19 on the heart

A study of 100 Covid-19 patients found 78 suffered cardiovascular damage of one form or another linked to contracting and recovering from Covid

Cardiovascular diseases account for 36%  of deaths in Ireland. High blood pressure is experienced by one in four Irish men. All told around 10,000 people in Ireland die from heart disease every year

New Year should be a time of banked-up fines, the scent of flowers and wine, good talk, good memories and loyalties renewed. But if all else is lacking - love will do.新年是这样美好的时光:炉火熊熊,花儿芬芳,醇酒飘香,殷殷祝福,美好回忆,恩爱日新。即便没有一切,只要有爱便足矣。

Gongloff piles on the bad news about 2014: GDP 'grew at a 1.8% annualized pace in the first quarter ... revising down its earlier estimate of 2.4% growth ... The first quarter's dismal growth was at least better than the 0.4% GDP growth of the fourth quarter of 2012. But it was still far from healthy, and economists don't see it getting much stronger any time soon.' And that's real bad news for the markets going into 2014.

Taken together, these events and strategic initiatives highlight the Chinese aerospace industry’s realization that, in order to become a globally competitive player, it will need depth as much as breadth. After getting their hands on both ends of the value chain—aircraft design and final assembly—the Chinese now understand that what will make or break their industry over the long term is what happens in the middle of the value chain, at the component and subsystem levels. And that is why China’s ambition to compete with Boeing and Airbus, as well as with GE and Rolls-Royce for aircraft engines, is now more credible than ever.

No one since Michael Haneke has enjoyed cinematically dissecting social conventions as much as Greek film-maker Yorgos Lanthimos. His The Lobster took Cannes by storm two years ago with its scathing look at a society that turns adults into animals if they cannot find a romantic partner within 45 days – it was our world but pushed toward the outermost limits of groupthink and conformity. Now he’s back with The Killing of a Sacred Deer, a domestic thriller about a surgeon (Colin Farrell) and his wife (Nicole Kidman), also a doctor, who befriends a fatherless teen named Martin. The boy seems determined to expose the family’s secrets and unmask a terrible trauma from their past. Is this film about how domestic (and perhaps societal) tranquility sometimes depends on shared, agreed-upon lies? Either way, prepare to be unnerved.

“We know that patients with high blood pressure, obesity and heart disease are at increased risk of developing a severe Covid-19 illness in the case of infection with the virus. All three of these conditions have a high prevalence in Ireland compared with other countries,” says Prof Robert Byrne, director of cardiology at the Mater Private Hospital.

The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio is heading up an initiative called Covid-19 and its Cardiovascular Impact Rapid Response Grant, one of the biggest efforts of its kind under way.

It and 11 other medical agencies at Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Stanford and Harvard universities and others are currently working towards “actionable outcomes” on how to protect the heart from Covid-related damage.

“We do have a list of the projects, which span from basic to clinical. We are getting a website up soon that will have this information. Hopefully (we) will get an update in a couple of weeks,” says lead researcher Mina K Chung of the Cleveland Clinic.

1. China’s Economy.China is the second largest consumer of oil in the world and surpassed the United States as the largest importer of liquid fuels in late 2013. More importantly for oil prices is how much China’s consumption will increase in the coming years. According to the EIA, China is expected burn through 3 million more barrels per day in 2020 compared to 2012, accounting for about one-quarter of global demand growth over that timeframe. Although there is much uncertainty, China just wrapped up a disappointing fourth quarter, capping off its slowest annual growth in over a quarter century. It is not at all obvious that China will be able to halt its sliding growth rate, but the trajectory of China’s economy will significantly impact oil prices in 2015.

Experts in pulmonary rehabilitation at the Hp2 Lab at the Grenoble Alps University in France suggest that for survivors of the virus, physical exercises such as walking are essential to regaining muscle tissue – including those in the coronary system – lost due to being horizontal for a long period. Unlike organs such as the lungs and skin, once the heart suffers significant damage it has little ability to repair itself.

Echoing many specialists, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Trinity College and RCSI professor emeritus of preventive cardiology Ian Graham believes it is too early to draw ironclad conclusions on how the virus directly affects the coronary system.
