Improve control of hypertension is among the best ways to face the coronavirus (COVID-19)
In response to the tremendous public and patients’ interest and in support of the National Operational Crisis Staff, BCI states: Improve control of hypertension is among the best ways to face the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This is the main conclusion and advice that comes from the report of Prof. Dr. Du Bin, Director of the Intensive Care unit at Peking Union Medical College Hospital, sent to lead the campaign against COVID-19 in Wuhan, the epicenter of the infection. Dr. Bin is a very successful and respected expert in the field of critical care for patients in China. He confirmed to Bloomberg this week that 50% of those who died in from the virus in January and February in Wuhan were individuals with high (uncontrolled or not well controlled) blood pressure.
