Abstract : The recent pandemic of Covid 19 infection had a huge impact on mankind mainly due to high transmissibility and mortality rates. Data from China and New York reported a substantial number of patients with myocardial injury in the Covid 19, but this was mainly based on elevated cardiac Troponin levels [1], [2]. Elevation of Troponin in Covid 19 patient is associated with adverse prognosis and fatal outcome [2], [3]. In theory, causes of myocardial injury in Covid 19 are diverse ranging from myocarditis, microangiopathy, type-I & type-II myocardial infarction and myocardial injury due to cytokine storm [4], [5]. In our opinion it is important that we should recognize the cardiological manifestations among the Covid-19 patients in the early stages of the disease in order to start appropriate therapy accordingly within time, to monitor these patients closely and at the same time prevent unnecessary exposure of health care workers to Covid 19 infection. Therefore, the aim of the study was to explore the incidence of ECG & Echocardiography findings in hospitalized patients with Covid 19 at the very beginning of hospitalization and to assess its relation to cardiac biomarker analysis like Trop-I and D-dimer to evaluate the cardiac function of these patients.
