Comorbidity is an underlying medical condition. Certain underlying medical conditions and illnesses have been identified to place the sufferer thereof at a higher risk for COVID-19, the Coronavirus infection.

The regulations in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, as well as the Disaster Management directives, expect of employers to identify employees with a high-risk profile and to take specific measures under these circumstances.

COVID-19 Comorbidities:

o Many conditions can cause a person to be immune-compromised, including cancer
treatment, smoking, bone marrow or organ transplantation, fibromyalgia, TB, immune
deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other
immune weakening medications
 Hypertension (high blood pressure)
 People with diabetes
 People with chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis
 People with liver disease
