In this report, we describe the case of a 78-year-old man with no history of lung disease who presented with heart failure 2 weeks after the diagnosis of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). After the administration of anti-virals and diuretics, nutritional treatment for myocardial infarctions, and other treatments, the patient tested negative for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, and his heart function significantly improved. Thus, we postulate that COVID-19 can lead to decreased heart function; attention must be paid to changes of inflammation and heart function, which must be actively treated.
