Pacemaker and Covid 19
I am a 41 year old male. I have a single lead pacemaker for bradycardia. I've had the pacemaker for about 15 years. I have a family history of high blood pressure but it's totally controlled with medication. Would you think I'm at any higher risk for experiencing severe Covid 19 symptoms if I contract it? I am trying to determine risk as I get back out into society as my state opens back up. I am in medical sales so I interact with many people. I woudnt think the pacemaker would cause any extra risk but I'm not 100% sure. Thoughts?? Thank you

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
