33% of Big Ten athletes with Covid-19 has heart inflammation

Big Ten conference is the oldest Division I collegiate athletic conference in the United States with athletes in just about every athletic field for college students. Unfortunately, up to 35% of the Big Ten athletes (not isolated to football players) who had Covid-19 are showing signs of inflammation of the heart muscle called myocarditis.

It is unclear how myocarditis could affect the long term health of the athletes.

The Big Ten conference has been pressured to play, with some athletes, coaches, and even Pres. Trump urging the team to play. However, the kind of effect the myocarditis has on the athletes are worrying; the athletes who performed at their peak one week are found to be struggling like a normal individual, due to this heart inflammation.

If there is an overload of impact on the heart, the person could suffer many complications, including death.

As schools and colleges begin to return their students home, Big Ten has a real problem on their hands, and it is always important to remember that before they are athletes, they are students, and young people, some just recently turned 18. It is a cruel fate to bestow, and one that these student athletes may have to take with them for the rest of their lives.

Big Ten should take this into account in determining whether the conference plays this season.
