The WHO has advised that people with high blood pressure (hypertension) are more vulnerable to COVID-19 infection and are more likely to become very ill if they do contract the virus. If your high blood pressure is untreated, your weakened immune system can make you more susceptible to an infection like COVID-19.
That is why it is more important than ever to continue taking your medication for hypertension. If you think you may have high blood pressure, get checked and start treatment immediately.
If you are stable on your medication, ask your nurse about registering for the CCMDD service so that you can collect your medicine quickly and easily.
