Unfortunately, you did not state medical history which is very important when test results are interpreted. If this person has Covid-19 infection, high ESR and CRP are common. Tropin, EKG and Echocardiogram results are not consistent with myocarditis and diastolic dysfunction is commonly present in hypertensive patients.
