This study plans to learn more about coronavirus infection in the heart. We wish to investigate whether the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 directly infects heart muscle tissue, and if so, how this might occur. The hope is that once we better understand how this process occurs, that we may be able to develop or utilize drugs to treat this process. Patients are being asked to be in this research study because they have coronavirus causing COVID-19 infection and have signs that is impacting your heart.

Main Procedures Involved: - Echocardiogram - Heart Function Assessment - Blood Draws - Heart Biopsy

Duration of Participation: Approximately 2-weeks
