    New Delhi: The central government’s latest guidelines for clinical management of Covid-19 cases lists tuberculosis (TB) as one of the diseases that can put patients at “high risk” of severe infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    Ailments like hypertension, diabetes and others that can compromise immunity are also on the list.

    ... The latest clinical management guidelines, released Monday, include sevencategories of people who are at “high risk” of severe Covid or mortality because of it — people aged above 60 years, those with cardiovascular disease, hypertension and coronary artery disease (CAD), people suffering from diabetes mellitus or immunocompromised states (such as HIV), patients of active tuberculosis, patients of chronic lung kidney or liver disease, people with cerebral vascular diseases, and obese people.
