Josh Archibald and Alex Stalock got myocarditis after a virus infection

Although most people talk about vaccinated players who felt the effects of the vaccine and got heart disease, this time it is not the same with Alex Stalock, the Edmonton Oilers goalkeeper, who is one of the key players in his team.

Alex Stalock developed myocarditis after COVID infections. Also, his teammate Josh Archibald got myocarditis after an asymptomatic COVID. Archibald is thought to have gotten COVID sometime during the summer because he turned out to have a large number of antibodies.

“He had a severe viral infection coming out of his quarantine,” after arriving in Canada fort training camp, Oilers head coach Dave Tippett said on Sunday. "What the tests showed is that at some point this summer he'd had COVID, and he tested positive for the antibodies."

Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle, and it is obvious that COVID weakened the body of both players, and their bodies became much more sensitive after COVID. It is also interesting that Archibald was the last player on the team who decided not to get vaccinated.

It turned out that COVID can also endanger the body even after getting sick, and that the biggest problem is not the vaccine.

Ian Paterson gave a coment

Dr. Ian Paterson, a cardiologist with the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, commented on such a case: "Myocarditis related to COVID, related to the virus itself, is said to effect approximately five to 15 per cent of people who have been sick with the virus," Dr.

Paterson told CTV News Edmonton on Monday. "It's about a one in 100,000 risk of developing myocarditis from the vaccine versus about 10 per cent from the virus." "That's a 10,000 fold greater risk of getting myocarditis from the virus, we think, than from the vaccine," said Dr.

Paterson. "So absolutely we think that the vaccine will protect people from the virus and getting myocarditis from the virus." Too much effort and too much training after COVID could very well endanger the body of an athlete "Myocarditis related to the virus, including COVID, we think are self-limited, meaning that people do expect a complete recovery of their heart, "he said."

There is, however, concerns about athletes returning to play after they've had myocarditis. " "It's an injury to the heart," he said. "It's causing some inflammation of the heart muscle and there's a risk that if you're stimulating the body and, you know, exercising and having a lot of adrenaline pumping through you, that it could irritate the heart."
