The global COVID-19 pandemic has created in its wake an urgent need for a clear guide for managing cardiovascular diseases and the complications it causes on the cardiovascular system. In this regard, the Executive Council of the Nigerian Cardiac Society constituted a committee to develop guidelines on management of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID 19) and Cardiovascular Diseases. These guidelines have been written to provide a simple approach to managing cardiovascular diseases among COVID 19 patients in Nigeria. It will also provide information about potential cardiac implications of COVID 19 based on evidence and offer early clinical guidance on the management, given the current uncertainty of COVID 19. We have intended that this brief write up and set of recommendations be useful not only for primary care physicians, residents and medical students, but also for all professionals who work as hands-on practitioners.
