Concerns exists that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) increase susceptibility to coronavirus SARS CoV-2 (the viral agent that causes the disease COVID-19) and the likelihood of severe COVID-19 illness. Millions of people around the world are on treatment with ACE-inhibitors and ARBs for hypertension, heart failure, coronary artery disease, or kidney disease. Speculation about worse outcomes among patients on these medications during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread anxiety among patients and their care providers. This article is based on different effects of COVID-19 on those patients with other severe diseases like hypertension, pneumonia, diabetes etc. It also explains that whether angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors have any bad impact on these patients if they continue to use these drugs.
