COVID-19 fears fuel rise in heart attacks in Nova Scotia – CBC

‘They miss the opportunity to prevent that heart attack by paying attention to the warning signs’

Fear of COVID-19 has kept people with early symptoms of heart attack and stroke from going to the hospital, which has led to a jump in serious cardiovascular cases across the province, according to new research by Nova Scotia Health.
