The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has become a global pandemic. After reviewing recent publications on clinical manifestations of COVID-19, we have found that in addition to respiratory, gastrointestinal and neurological symptoms, cardiovascular manifestations including myocardial injury, heart failure, arrhythmias and venous thromboembolism are also common in patients with COVID-19, especially in those with severe disease. It is very important to identify cardiovascular manifestations at early stage of the disease and appropriate interventions should be considered for these patients for a better outcome.
