In brief: 1/3-1/3-1/3

This is an oversimplification, but some have described myocarditis outcomes as 1/3 have a complete recovery, 1/3 have evidence of long-term heart injury, but survive, and 1/3 die or require heart transplantation for survival.
Heart failure medicines or even circulatory support may positively affect outcomes. There are patient differences that affect outcomes and each virus has a different effect.
