I was born with a septal defect, the last check up I had for

This answer was rated:

I was born with a septal defect, the last check up I had for this would have been mid 90s when I was an early teen. Is this an underlying health issue I should be worried about with Covid-19?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
