Study: Heart attacks increased among young people post-COVID




  • A study revealed that the number of heart attack deaths has increased since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
  • The increase was particularly pronounced in young people between the ages of 25 and 44.
  • The study authors suggested that it could be because young people’s stronger immunity could also cause an excessive response to the virus.

A recent study has found that the number of deaths from heart attacks increased since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The increase was more pronounced in people aged between 25 and 44. A 29.9% relative increase in heart attack deaths (about 30% higher than the predicted number) was observed in this age group over the first two years of the pandemic.

Cardiologist Dr. Susan Cheng, a study co-author, told TODAY, “Young people are obviously not really supposed to die of heart attack. They’re not really supposed to have heart attacks at all.”

The relative increase in heart attack deaths among adults between 45 and 64 was 19.6%, and 13.7% for adults 65 and older.

This increase also coincided with COVID-19 surges in the country. Los Angeles County paramedic Romeo Robles told TODAY that such surges would often lead to an increase in emergency calls related to heart issues, even among young people.

Cheng pointed out that the connection is surely “more than coincidental,” since COVID-19 can have a significant impact on the cardiovascular system. She said that the illness appears to increase “the stickiness of the blood,” the probability of “blood clot formation,” blood pressure spikes, and “an overwhelming stress.”

While the reason for the increased rate in young people is still unclear, the study authors posited a theory. Cheng said that young people were more likely to have stronger immune systems which could also lead to an excessive response to the virus.

A February 2022 study of over 150,000 individuals with COVID-19 revealed that COVID-19 survivors are at “substantial” risk of developing heart disease even a year after infection, regardless of their symptoms’ severity and risk factors.

Physician-scientist Dr. Ziyad Al-Aly, a study co-author, estimated that around 4% of people who had COVID-19 will develop a heart issue that ranges from an irregular heartbeat and inflammation to heart attacks and heart failure.

The risk also increases with each COVID-19 infection an individual experiences.

If you have been infected before, especially multiple times, Cheng advised improving your health and monitoring your risk factors, such as blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol.

Heart attack signs to look out for include: pain, discomfort, or pressure in the chest area; pain or discomfort in the neck, jaw, or back; cold sweat; weakness, light-headedness, or fainting; and shortness of breath.


The study noted that the number of heart attacks has been previously decreasing in the country, but the trend increased again since the pandemic.

The study from the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles was published in September 2022.

    How convenient…another so-called”professional” completely leaves out the facts and data that is proving that these experimental jabs are causing a myriad of heart problems among other problems they have created in their attempt to do their test run on just how submissive the sheeple would be…and to line their damn pockets on people’s deaths and permanent health damages! PURE EVIL!

      Yes, very interesting that there is NO reference to the cardiovascular damage done by “THE JAB”! It is a known FACT that the jab CAUSES heart issues. So I do NOT believe it is the “virus” that has caused these additional deaths. I believe these deaths are caused by THE JAB and the jab alone!

      Right on! As a 73 retiree I have not been vaccinated, not had covid, and not changed my life. Will the sheople ever wake up? In US, health regulators get about 67% of their $ directly from big pharma. In many other countries even higher! No conflict of interest??

      The media perpetuates the lie as well by running covid commercials and the lie about how effective they are. Government, media, and global elite are all hellbound!

    Non of this is surprising. There have been 3 of my immediate family members suffering from suspicious illnesses since COVID began as well as since being vaccinated. In particular, most problems were happening after being vaccinated. I have not been vaccinated nor have I ever been diagnosed with COVID and I have not have any problems at all. I am very concerned that our government and elected officials have demanded that we be vaccinated, even though it won’t prevent COVID, or prevent COVID from being spread. Don’t drink the kool aid.

      Same here. I am 83, have not been vaccinated, have been exposed numerous times and haven’t had it. As a side note, I have an herditary clotting factor, for which I use Nattokinase-a CLOT BUSTER, approved in Japan now for over 50 years. It is fermented soy-a cheese, eaten by the japanese as part of their regular diet and they hardly know what heart disease is (Natto means stinky cheese); After a pulmonary embolism (caused by LYRICA) and their not being able to regulate their prescription meds, I went on line and found it! Have only had ONE probloem-I was not aware that it is a “clot buster” NOT a thinner, so since I was having an invasive dental procedure, I got off it for 3 days! Had DOUBLE pulmonary embolisms. Went back and read the latest and found out I didn’t have to get off it for any reason. CANNOT take any thinners (aspirin, etc) as THEY will make me bleed out, but could take the whole bottle of Natto w/no side effects. Added benefit-it lowers cholesterol. Another-last report they have found it is both a PREVENTIVE and a CURE for Covid 19! Best on on the mkt-university study. Look up Nattokinase-Covid. I broke a hip in 2020 and the hematologist told my surgeon he couldn’t operate for 2 WEEKS. Surgeon said “She’ll be dead in 2 wks. I’ll give you 2 days. I KNEW he was wrong! After surgery he came in to “apologize”! He had called his professor/mentor in medical school, and the professor told him “She is RIGHT, You are WRONG!” It isn’t a thinner, it’s a clot buster and she could take the whole bottle and go straight to surgery.” I came out of surgery-took NO pain pills, except for leg cramp (3) and live on my own, no walker, no cane! They put me in different groups to show them what an 80+ yr old could do! Oh-they think that w/in about 2-3 yrs, Natto will be the #1 heart disease for ALL heart diseases, on the mkt! (If we can get it past the FDA!!_ You know who we gotta vote for! LOL

    Fouci’s ouchi is responsible for the increase in heart attack deaths. Convenient they left the correlation data out as already noted by prior comments.

    If you ask me, I could say that it is caused from Massive amounts of straying Electrical Currents; as in, 5G Networks, Turbine Wind Power, or if they live close to Nuclear Power Plants, Fumes from factories burning down, or derailed trains that were transporting Chemicals that caught fire, that man decided to let them burn off, or the results from all of the tweaking of the earths electrical magneto sphere the Switz Miss Physicists have been trying; to become famous enough to receive a Nobel Prize from their (Orgazmic) delights of New Atomic Matter splitting into disconnecting each humans mind of earth by overdosing us to death! Because a defibulator can start or shut down a heart rythum, so can other stimuli. Mentally, Physically, Psychically, and also the forces we cannot see. Psychologically!

    Believe me it is not only covid that is causing this.More than likely it’s the stress that’s caused by the anti AMERICAN robot and its totally inept handlers and corrupt advisers that can’t make decisions that benefit AMERICA.

    The COVID vaccines were worthless as far as stopping you from contacting whatever disease it is supposed to keep you from getting. People that were vaccinated still tested positive over and over and some even developed serious health problems even after numerous “boosters”. The whole COVID thing was a political fraud from the start. Politicians loved it because they had more control over the people than they ever had. Doctors and hospitals have made a fortune because they charged 3 0r 4 times as much if you tested positive. People were testing positive when they were not even sick, had no symptoms, or didn’t even know they had it. When this happened, instead of testing the “tests” to see if they were accurate, they just made up a name for it and counted it as another Covid patient and if they died from a gunshot wound or a vehicle accident and tested positive, it was counted as a virus death. Nobody knows how many people had the disease, or died from the disease because the stats were not set up that way. Fauci and all these people should be held accountable for all the deaths and sickness that happened because of their stupidity. There is no way of knowing how it will affect the younger people when they get older. I have heard of 2 high school football players who have collapsed on the field with heart attacks. It may just be starting.

      Vaccines actually work. This clot shot is no different than the flu shot. You’ll get what was injected.

      Definitely! Why do you think they all have heart conditions now.

    It is very suspicious that there is not one word about the so-called “vaccine” causing young people to drop dead. Who headed up this study? Maybe I missed it.

    clearly, the vaccine is causing this, not the china virus
