COVID-19-Miami-Lawyer-300x300Even those with mild COVID-19 infections can experience health complications that persist for months or even years after the initial infection. Approximately 19% of US adults who have tested positive for COVID-19 suffer from “long COVID,” which refers to ongoing symptoms that persist for four or more weeks after the acute phase of the illness. Researchers from Intermountain Health in Salt Lake City have conducted a study on nearly 150,000 patients to understand the potential cardiovascular symptoms associated with long COVID.

The study found that patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 had a higher incidence of chest pain in the six months to one year after the initial infection. Although the study did not show significant rates of heart attacks or strokes in patients who had a mild initial infection, persistent chest pains could indicate future cardiovascular complications.

The research was presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 2023 Scientific Conference in New Orleans on March 5th. The study involved comparing three groups of Intermountain Health patients: those who tested positive for COVID-19 and were treated in an outpatient setting, those who tested negative for COVID-19, and a group of patients seen prior to the pandemic.

COVID-19-Miami-Lawyer-300x300Fort Lauderdale: A man in South Florida has been sentenced to six years and two months in federal prison for attempting to fraudulently obtain over $4.2 million in COVID-19 relief funds by filing false loan applications. Valesky Barosy, aged 28, was found guilty of five counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, and one count of aggravated identity theft by a jury in December. In addition to the prison time, Barosy must also repay over $2.1 million for the money he actually received.

According to prosecutors, Barosy submitted fraudulent loan applications for himself and his accomplices, using falsified prior-year expenses, net profit, and payroll information, as well as fraudulent IRS tax forms. The scheme resulted in Barosy and his accomplices receiving approximately $2.1 million in loans, which they used to purchase luxury items such as a Lamborghini Huracán EVO, Rolex and Hublot watches, and designer clothing from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Chanel. Barosy posted photos of these purchases on his Instagram account, touting his success as an entrepreneur.

Barosy’s fraudulent loan applications and fabricated tax documents were found on his computer, along with text messages soliciting information from prospective clients. His accomplices paid him a 20-30% kickback for each loan application submitted. The Paycheck Protection Program, which provides forgivable small-business loans to Americans affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, must be used to pay employees, mortgage interest, rent, and utilities. It is part of the federal coronavirus relief package that was enacted in 2020.

A white sports sedan was spotted in Miami-Dade.

Footage shows a vehicle floating temporarily after it apparently broke through the barrier that marked the end of the parking area. Investigators and insurance claims adjusters will need to determine whether the driver was at fault for the accident which led the vehicle into the water. It will be interesting to see if the barrier was in some way broken, deteriorated, or was toppled by the driver, who apparently went into the parking space head-first. Rescue units were immediately notified and no fatal injuries have been reported.
