I've heard that those with "heart disease" are at increased risk of a severe illness if they contract coronavirus.

Would someone with an asymptomatic conduction block (e.g. bifasicular block) of unknown aetiology be considered to be in a higher risk group?

  • People have may (partial) conduction blocks without any burden of disease. In general it is hard to assess a question on you having 'heard' about something. Maybe ask your 'source' for sources? – Thomas Apr 19 at 15:50

This is at a level that had not been reported but cardiac disease is meant to mean where there is lowered cardiovascular reserve. Hypertension is also included for unknown reasons but may relate to ace medications, or just less reserve.

This is speculating right now.
