Students return to the Duke Campus this week and will undergo testing and protocols to reduce transmission. We are all continuing to struggle with understanding and working in the COVID-19 world. This last week there was an important article in the journal JAMA that showed evidence of myocardial involvement with COVID-19. The images are included here.
Additionally, our faculty and fellows are working in many groups to help the system care for both the cardiovascular patients and our COVID-19 patients. We will be spending the upcoming weeks reviewing our research and quality work in the Heart Center around our COVID and our continuing heart care. We appreciate all the support from the heart community.
