The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented global impact on public health and health care delivery. Outside of direct health consequences, social distancing restrictions have also disrupted the delivery of routine health care across the country. The changes have fast-tracked digital and health policy innovations unlike any the primary care sector has seen over a short period of time. Social distancing and strict hygiene measures are particularly important for people living with cardiovascular disease (CVD) given their increased vulnerability to the most severe complications of COVID-19. However, there is growing concern that people with chronic diseases are avoiding their regular medical visits, investigations or vaccinations in a bid to avoid contracting COVID-19.
