I have Atrial Fibrillation

Am I at greater risk of getting COVID-19?


Atrial fibrillation by itself does not increase the risk of infection. Nevertheless, many atrial fibrillation patients are older and have other conditions, such as heart failure, hypertension, and diabetes, which make them more likely to have a more severe disease, if infected. All patients are advised to take general protective measures such as social distancing and washing hands frequently and appropriately to prevent infection. 13
