Thank you for contacting us.

Comorbidity generally means the presence of other chronic medical conditions that are present in a patient. Since you have a history of a heart bypass procedure, which indicates a heart problem and problem with blood pressure, you are considered as having comorbidities. In fact, you are under the group of people with increased risk of severe infection if infected by Covid-19. Please get vaccinated as soon as possible if you haven’t.

We hope that this answer has been helpful.
Thank you.
