OK to continue hypertension drugs for COVID-19-infected patients

Two common types of high blood pressure drugs - angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin II receptor blocks (ARBs) - are unlikely to increase susceptibility to COVID-19 or harm those who are positive for the disease, researchers say. Organizations should be aware of the findings to reassure those taking the drugs and perhaps their doctors, as well. Given that the pandemic is interfering with and delaying doctor visits in many cases, people should know they can continue these medications if they are working and not causing new side effects.
