The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in people with pre-existing conditions not keeping up with their prescriptions, and not going to their clinics and/or doctors for regular check-ups, partly due to fear of venturing out during this time. This has been noted by healthcare professionals who have urged people to continue to take care of their well-being. To discuss this matter further is Dr. Francesca Conradie from the Clinical HIV Research Unit at Wits University.
