While everyone is at risk of contracting COVID-19, the consequences of infection are more severe for some vulnerable groups. This includes PLHIV who are:
- Aged over 60 years old
- Living with a detectable viral load or not on HIV treatment
- Living with a comorbidity such as heart or lung issues
If you are living with HIV, have an undetectable viral load, and CD4 count above 200 - you are at no greater risk of poorer health outcomes due to COVID-19. That being said, you should still exercise the basic strategies for preventing COVID-19.
