What Is COVID-19?
In the first video of our COVID-19 essential advice video series, our expert teams discuss the cause of the virus and how it spreads from one person to another.
What Is Your Risk of Suffering From The COVID-19 Infection?
It has been proven that, if you are elderly over the age of 70, you may be at higher risk of contracting the virus and even more so if you have hypertension or diabetes. We’re exploring the reasons why in our second video of the series.
If You Have Underlying Heart Disease You Are at Increased Risk of Developing More Severe COVID-19 Disease
Whether you have hypertension, diabetes or underlying heart disease, you may be at greater risk of developing a more severe form of Coronavirus. However, patients who have “normal” heart function can also develop a severe heart injury as a result of the virus.
Should I Consider Having Heart Surgery During The COVID-19 Virus?
You may need urgent heart surgery if you have a certain condition such as symptomatic aortic valve stenosis. Learn more about having heart surgery during the COVID-19 crisis.
What Should I Do If I Contract The COVID-19 Infection?
In our second from last video of our series, we explain what you must do if you have an existing heart condition and you develop COVID-19.
