A 49-year-old man presented with worsening high-grade fevers, dry cough, and shortness of breath. He tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 and was noted to have bradycardia with intermittent high-degree atrioventricular block. However, cardiac biomarkers and echocardiographic findings were normal, thus making this an unusual and interesting manifestation of myocardial involvement of this novel coronavirus. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
