SASSUOLO, ITALY – A professional footballer has been diagnosed with myocarditis after his COVID-19 vaccination. Pedro Obiang, 29-years-old, received his COVID-19 shot in July. He was hospitalized for around ten days shortly after for heart problems. He was recently discharged but can’t play football for a minimum of 6 months. A doctor, who prefers to remain anonymous, confirmed that the footballer was diagnosed with myocarditis: “Yes, I confirm the diagnosis”.
Myocarditis, inflammation of the muscle tissue of the heart (the myocardium), is a particularly serious problem for athletes since it damages and destroys the cells of one of the most important organs for competitive activity. Pedro Obiang who currently plays as a midfielder for Serie A club Sassuolo and the Equatorial Guinea national team is now unsure whether he’ll ever be able to play football again.
It was reported yesterday that Italian volleyball player Francesca Marcon suffered heart problems (pericarditis) as a result of her second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
