Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist in the United States, has supported Novak Djokovic’s stance on COVID-19 immunizations by asserting that they can harm the heart. Djokovic, 35, is at risk of missing the US Open because he has not had the COVID-19 immunization.
Foreigners entering the United States must provide proof of immunization in accordance with current vaccine rules. Dr. McCullough was described by Sportskeeda as saying, “The COVID-19 vaccines, all of them, in the medical literature, there are over 200 articles, all cause heart damage and that’s the last thing an athlete can risk,”
“Failure of the heart or, sadly, rapid death can result from cardiac injury. He made the right choice, and the effects of the vaccination reach beyond only cardiac damage.
When receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, a professional tennis player is at danger of harm to their spinal muscles, nerves, and brain, among other things.”
Djokovic’s attitude on the vaccination is defended by McCullough.
“They should be subject to the same limitations as the broader public.
The testing that is frequently conducted has been the subject of published work by NCAA players. The prevalence of COVID-19 is lower among athletes than it is among all students “said Dr. McCullough.
After winning Wimbledon, Djokovic is currently taking a nap. Due to the likelihood that he won’t be permitted to play in the US Open, the Montreal and Cincinnati Masters, and other tournaments, Djokovic could not return until the fall.
Djokovic stated after winning Wimbledon that he had no intention of getting immunized before the US Open. Djokovic has made it clear that he has no intention of using force to enter the United States. The Australia saga was not enjoyable for Djokovic since he won’t travel to the United States without authorization.
