There is a lot of information available on the internet about the COVID -19 virus ( #coronavirus ) and what we know changes daily. Those with underlying conditions such as heart, lung or kidney disease and compromised immune systems are at greatest risks. .
The best place to get your information is directly from the CDC. The page is updated regularly.
The CDC has a special page for People at Risk for Serious Illness from COVID-19
The WHO ( World Health Organization) provides information at https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019 .
Cancer.net has a page with advice for cancer patients ( https://www.cancer.net/blog/2020-03/coronavirus-2019-what-people-with-cancer-need-know) as do a number of cancer centers. Here are a few website,

You may also want to check to see if your county has specific information about COVIS-19 for their residents like my county in NJ.(http://www.mercercounty.org/departments/division-of-public-health/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19-outbreak )
Remember to follow this advice:
If you have symptoms ( Fever, Cough, Shortness of Breath) or questions regarding your specific situation, please contact your Health Care Provider .
Every Day is a Blessing!
