After reading the story on the Athletic, this is pretty sobering.
They didn't get specific, but Rossi is having heart problems after 'recovering' from COVID19. This is still a fairly new virus, it makes me wonder what more we'll know about it as it is studied more.

COVID-19 has been known for quite some time now to be more than just a respiratory virus.
Several studies have supported the growing hypothesis that coronavirus is primarily a cardiovascular, and not a pulmonary virus.

Even when an infected person is a-symptomatic, the virus is impacting the persons cardiovascular system in many ways.

There is a reason why if you are old, and are admitted to the hospital for COVID they quickly put you on anti-coagulant drugs and a heavy dose of steroids.
