Nearly eleven months after the first COVID-19 case was detected in China, the world is only coming to terms with how deadly SARS-COV-2 virus could be. What was first dismissed as a flu-like infection could carry repercussions for your vital organs as well. From the severity of infection to post-COVID symptoms, COVID-19 can be quite dangerous than we thought.

One of the most affected organs is the heart. According to a study published in JAMA Cardiology, nearly 78% of recovered patients throng back to hospitals complaining of heart ailments. New evidence now suggests that cardiac problems could also strike those in the first days of infection, even for those who show no visible symptoms.

From shortness of breath, cardiovascular complications, muscle breakdown and inflammation (myocarditis), there’s a lot of implications for your heart, even if you haven’t encountered a heart problem before. For those with heart problems, COVID-19 could also bring an increased mortality risk.

A complete appreciation and understanding of COVID-19, its short and long term effects are still in process. Even as this unfolds, it is clear that beyond the infection itself, the virus impacts vital organs in the body. The heart is one,” says Dr Chetan Rathi, Consultant Cardiologist, and Electrophysiologist, JNMC, Wardha. 

Dr Rathi also warned that heart health could be impacted in many ways, in the long run. “Patients with cardiovascular diseases are at an enhanced risk of more severe complications arising from COVID-19. At a preliminary level, it may lead to a decrease in heart function. This could be a result of either the systemic inflammatory response to infection or direct viral infection in the heart. The two most common heart conditions the virus causes are heart failure and heart arrhythmia.

So, if you have a pre-existing heart problem, or have been recently diagnosed with one, it’s pertinent to be cautious and opt for regular screenings and tests. Heart patients who get infected with the virus should keep in touch with their doctors regularly and keep them updated for timely medical intervention if required.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
