In addition, it has been reported that Coronavirus might also lead to cardio cerebral vascular diseases since many heart related symptoms might appear in the coronavirus patients, which suggests that coronavirus might lead to damage on other tissues besides lung. According to the epidemiological survey, 40% of COVID-19 patients have been found to have cerebrovascular and chronic diseases.
