Brief Summary:
The study is a prospective clinical cohort study of consecutive patients hospitalized at all hospitals of greater Copenhagen with a laboratory confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19. The investigators aim to examine if echocardiography - both conventional and advanced - can be used to predict which patients will develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) or other short-term acute complications, especially focusing on cardiovascular outcomes. In addition, using a novel technique of lung ultrasound (LUS), The investigators aim to analyze specific LUS-findings, and associate them with short-term prognosis and development of ARDS and long-term cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In all patients included, The investigators aim to examine long-term complications at timepoints: 2, 5 and 10 years of follow-up and examine if echocardiography - alone and in combination with biomarkers - can be used to detect early signs of cardiac complications and predict long-term risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality following COVID-19 infection
