COVID-19 and Heart Patients
While heart disease is recognized as a risk factor for severe COVID-19 symptoms, Valentín Fuster, MD, PhD, provides some reassuring advice. Not all heart patients are equally at risk, and not all personal contact with people who have COVID-19 is equally hazardous. Dr. Fuster provides common-sense guidelines for prevention, when to seek care, and maintaining a daily routine. Heart patients and their loved ones will find Dr. Fuster’s answers to common questions both calming and encouraging in this uncertain time.
