Heart attacks and strokes will still happen during a pandemic. These are medical emergencies, and getting quick care is critical to limit any heart or brain damage. It also will help you or a loved one get better faster.
Don't delay calling 911 because of fears that you might get COVID-19 at the hospital. Hospitals have safety measures in place to protect you from infection.
Bottom line: When compared with contracting COVID-19, you are much more likely to have a bad outcome if you ignore symptoms related to your heart condition.
