People with Covid-19 are more likely to develop blood clots during or for 90 days after discharge from hospital.

It is very important that patients taking anticoagulation medication should ensure they continue to take their medication if they get Covid-19.

A history of blood clots or being on anticoagulation medication does not put you at higher risk of getting Covid-19.
