A prominent Chinese cardiologist has acknowledged that COVID vaccines can cause severe myocarditis, and has proposed the establishment of centers focusing on diagnosis enhancement and treatment training.
An expert in cardiovascular internal medicine, Wang Daowen is the Director of the Internal Medicine Department at Tongji Hospital, Wuhan, and a professor at Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan. Wang is also a political figure, as he is a delegate to China’s rubber-stamp legislature.
During the recent “Two Sessions” meeting—the plenary sessions of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference—Wang advised China’s National Health Commission to establish facilities to target the widely prevalent phenomenon of fulminant myocarditis.
Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle, and can reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood—thus causing chest pain, shortness of breath, and a rapid or irregular heartbeat. Its fulminant—or sudden and severe—form, however, can lead to death from cardiac shock, arrhythmia, or multi-organ system failure.
