COVID-19 as a global pandemic has affected almost the entire world. The effect has been so big that it has burdened the healthcare systems of many countries to the fullest and crippled their economies. Millions have been infected with the virus and more than a quarter have died due to the disease. The spread of the virus across the globe has been rapid giving little time to the countries to prepare for the pandemic. Many people who have been infected are asymptomatic or have self-limiting disease. It has a long incubation period which serves as a major risk of transmission from asymptomatic individuals. We have to identify individuals who are at high risk of severe manifestations or death due to COVID-19. Clinical manifestations of COVID-19 are dominated by respiratory symptoms. Some patients have severe cardiovascular damage.
