COVID-19 is a new disease so we do not have complete or accurate information about the high-risk population. According to the currently available research, people who have serious chronic underlying medical conditions, such as hypertension, cardiac disease, renal disease, diabetes, obesity, and pulmonary disease might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. However, one can protect themselves by following the directives that the World Health Organization has recommended, which include, washing your hands thoroughly with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water, practicing social distancing, and avoiding close contact with any person who may be sick. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends use of cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. If a person has any symptoms related to COVID-19 infection it is best to contact a health care provider.
