Description Coronavirus disease 2019 (covid-19) is an infectious disease caused by a novel coronavirus, named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The mortality increases in patients older than 60 years. Younger patients with underlying serious chronic diseases are endangered by a fatal course of this infection as well. Cardiovascular manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 infection are diverse and include acute coronary syndromes, myocarditis, heart failure, arrhythmias, pericardial effusion, and thromboembolic complications. Direct and indirect myocardial injury is common in moderate and severe disease course. Troponin elevation is a marker of worse prognosis.
