Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle (myocardium). It can reduce the ability of the heart to both pump and create rapid or abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

According to the data published on Thursday, one kid suffered from the debilitation following the first shot while the others suffered from it after the second injection. Of the twelve cases, eleven were male and one was female.

Symptoms of myocarditis include shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, and irregular or rapid heartbeats. Severe myocarditis weakens the heart resulting in the body not getting enough blood. Clots that form in the heart, can lead to either a stroke or heart attack.
