A study led by researchers in the Sarver Heart Center at UArizona COM-T addressed concerns about the use of blood pressure medications and patients’ susceptibility to infection of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. They found that blood pressure medications do not increase the likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 infection, which is good news for people with hypertension, or uncontrolled high blood pressure.
