COVID-19 Patients With Hypertension Advised to Stay on Medication
The American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology and the Heart Failure Society of America has recommended that patients with hypertension continue taking their medication, even if they become infected with the COVID-19 virus. The organisations said that stopping could actually put patients at risk, since it's likely that their blood pressure would rise and cause heart problems.
