A novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) originated in Wuhan, China December 2019 and quickly became a global pandemic. The elderly and those with underlying health conditions may show more severe manifestations and poorer outcomes associated with COVID-19. The most prevalent underlying diseases in patients hospitalised with COVID-19 include hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [1]. Comorbidities are often also associated with depression, which can worsen outcomes [2]. Early detection is vital, and it is important that those with underlying health conditions have access to appropriate health care support at home, particularly in light of the concerns of the impact of social isolation relating to the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health and well-being.
