Cases of cardiovascular disease have nearly doubled since 1990 and deaths from cardiovascular disease have increased by 50%. In 2019, there were 18.6 million deaths due to cardiovascular disease, or 50000 people per day. Coronary heart disease (which causes myocardial infarction and angina pectoris) accounted for half of the world's cardiovascular deaths last year. Strokes accounted for one in three. The remaining 16% were due to other cardiovascular diseases such as aortic aneurysms, myocarditis or peripheral arterial disease.
