I’m a stroke survivor. What does coronavirus (COVID-19) mean for me?

Most people who get coronavirus (COVID-19) will recover quickly, but some people can have more severe symptoms including pneumonia. You’re at greater risk of complications if you are an older person, or have a health condition like diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease or chronic kidney disease. Having a suppressed immune system or being on some treatments like steroids and chemotherapy may also make you more at risk.

Stroke survivors have been telling us that they are worried about the coronavirus. Many people who have a stroke belong to an at-risk group, such as older people and those with health conditions, so we understand that it’s a real concern for many. 

What help is available?
