NLHI supports research into COVID-19-related cardiovascular complications
COVID-19 patients can develop cardiovascular complications, worsening their disease outcome compared to other COVID-19 patients.

The Netherlands Heart Institute supports two clinical studies that focus on COVID-19 in relation to cardiovascular diseases.
