Taking action now to optimize your underlying health can reduce the risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19.
COVID-19 is almost certain to continue to circulate in the population for a long time to come. As states across the country gradually relax the lock-down of their economies many of us remain terrified by the idea that the ordinary activities of our former lives, like going to work or a restaurant or a hair salon, could be a life-ending event. Avoiding exposure as much as possible remains important. But staying “locked-down” and endless social isolation is not entirely benign. Face masks, social distancing and rigorous hand washing are critically important as well but are not a guarantee of safety.
According to the CDC, 79% of all people requiring Intensive Care for COVID-19 in the USA have had an underlying medical condition or risk factor. You could make a substantial difference in your odds of a full recovery if you are infected in the months to come by reducing your health risk factors.
