Remo D'Souza, the dancer, choreographer is the latest to suffer a heart attack.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in 2X increase in heart attack cases among 30/40 year olds.

Remo D’Souza suffered a heart attack on the 11th of December in the afternoon and is currently in the ICU at a hospital in Mumbai.

The WHO and hosipitals are also reporting a rise in the number of heart related cases there're seeing.

Cardiologist Dr Aditya Kapoor, says a lot of these heart-related problems among 30/40 year old are due to rapid urbanization and industrialization.

“In three decades, the frequency of heart diseases in persons under 40 years has increased dramatically, maybe by three times”

The increase due to Covid is because people are avoiding going to hospitals, even though they are facing heart trouble symptoms
