  1. Maybe because the people who have cardiovascular disease are dying from it?

  2. It’s probably killing most of the people who would be dying of cardiovascular diseases in the coming months, so these numbers are going to tilt impressively towards COVID.

  3. Specifically there is a theroretically risk to pt who have cardiovascular disease as most are on an ACE inhibitor which may upregulate ace receptors providing more binding sites for the virus. Again theroetical not proven no one is reccomending discontinuing your ACE inhibitor drugs out there. You would likely still have increaseed receptors for a while regardless.

  4. if you think it’s bad in italy, wait for the US number in 2 weeks

  5. If that’s the case, that cardiovascular deaths are almost as high as Covid-19, and the whole world is shut down for Covid-19, why don’t we treat cardiovascular health more importantly? Honestly.

  6. sorry you are correct i ment arb regardless no proof increases risk. just a theory have seen floating around

  7. But, it’s just the flu.. right?
