British Lung Foundation
The British Lung Foundation outlines what measures to take if you live at home with a lung condition and gives coping strategies for staying at home. Shielding measures are also discussed to protect those who are extremely vulnerable which follows the government advice.
British Heart Foundation
Medical experts from the British Heart Foundation provide advice for those with a heart condition. They are considered at high risk of more severe complications of COVID-19 and some patients, in particular those who have had a transplant or are pregnant and have significant heart disease are classed as extremely vulnerable and so have to ‘shield’ in line with the government guidelines.
