What Happens When a Virus Hijacks Your Heart?

Myocarditis occurs when viruses that normally infect other parts of the body end up infecting the heart—but what happens then?

SICK is a new series that looks at how diseases actually work inside our body.

Come back every Tuesday for a new episode and let us know in the comments which diseases you think we should cover next.
