Comorbidities + COVID-19 = extra special care!
With lock-down easing, we must continue to protect ourselves, and be even more careful when we, or someone else, has other health challenges. A ‘comorbidity’ is when someone already suffering from a chronic illness catches yet another disease.
Now they have more than one health condition. This severely challenges the body’s ability to fight the diseases. With the defence system compromised there is a risk of severe illness or even death.
