The Air Rescue Team of FEMERAID International informs all our members, Knights and Dames of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Federation of the Autonomous Priories (KMFAP) about the followings:
People, who exercise at moderate intensity or above, are increasingly concerned about the potential long-term effects of COVID-19 infection on their health.
Studies report the prevalence of inflammatory heart diseases in professional athletes after being infected with the virus.
This raises a question to all those who play sports:
- After resuming COVID-19 infection, should they do a check-up before continuing physical activity?
Should it be a gradual and progressive return to previous levels of sports in order to detect any cardiac or pulmonary vulnerabilities that may have occurred during the infection?
We, at FEMERAID, think it’s better to be safe than sorry.
