People living with liver health conditions 

Please note this information was prepared on 19 March 2020. It is not intended to replace medical advice.

Global research suggests that older people and people with chronic health conditions, including those that are liver-related, are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19 than the average population.

The reasons for this increased risk are still being investigated and are likely to be complex.

Further information about Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found at the Department of Health and Human Services website.

If you suspect you have Coronavirus call the 24/7 Australia wide hotline on 1800 675 398
