I have a heart or circulatory condition – am I at increased risk of coronavirus?
We know that this is a frightening time for lots of people, especially if you already have a health problem. Most people with coronavirus (Covid-19) have mild symptoms and make a full recovery. Having a heart or circulatory condition probably doesn’t make you any more likely to catch coronavirus than anyone else. But if you have a heart condition it may mean that you could get more ill if you catch it, so it’s really important to protect yourself.
Anyone with a heart condition is considered at increased risk of more severe complications of Covid-19 coronavirus. If you’re also over 70, you’re at particularly high risk.
