Blood pressure medication improves COVID-19 survival rates

Read Time:24 Second

New research finds that medication for high blood pressure could improve Covid-19 survival rates and reduce the severity of infection. Researchers studied 28,000 patients taking antihypertensives – a class of drugs that are used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). They found that the risk of severe Covid-19 illness and death was reduced for patients with high blood pressure who were taking Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) or Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARB).
