    The answer to almost any medical question that goes something like “Can X cause Y?” is almost always “yes”. The real question is, “Is this of any clinical importance?”

    In that case, the answer is no. Temporary rise in blood pressure is almost never clinically significant, aside from such things as cocaine use, which can so dramatically raise blood pressure that it could cause a stroke.

    I see anxious people all the time who thrust a paper into my hands detailing their blood pressure, every 15 minutes, over the last few hours. I strive to be diplomatic in such cases, but lord, these short term elevations don’t mean a darned thing. Relax. And quit checking your blood pressure every 15 minutes. Generally speaking, we are worried about elevated blood pressure over decades, not hours.

    Yes, of course, in COVID 19 disease, the virus 2019-nCoV / SARS-CoV-2 cause a spike in blood pressure. It is interesting that novel corona virus genome sequence reveals that the virus outer shell is also called Spike Protein what we knew Capsid. More interesting is that these spike proteins attach ACE2 (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 receptor ) for its replication process and hence Person’s blood pressure is drastically reduced which medically we call it hypoxemia and the patients need traditional oxygen therapy or mechanical ventilation. I say it is interesting because people normally take ACE inhibitors/blockers(ramipril,Lisinopril,Captopril….suffix ‘pril’ ) for controlling their high blood pressure but in coronavirus attack, blood pressure is ultimately down. It is because this virus blocks ACE2 receptor and acts as a ACE inhibitor. Here is the virus Genome picture:

    I’m pretty sure it can. It can cause a host of cardiac related problems, and people with hypertension are in the high risk COVID-19 category. It stands fairly to reason it could, but… In fairness the CDC doesn’t explicitly list it as a symptom.

    It is a novel coronavirus and the scientists are gathering case files and statistics to learn more about the virus. But so far, it has been learnt through recent cases that it does not only attack the lungs. It attacks the heart, kidneys, liver, and even the blood circulation system.

    Possibly. However, any stress, especially continued stress worrying about having covid-19 or ‘white coat hypertension’ (nervousness about going to the doctor) will cause a spike in blood pressure. If it’s not accompanied by dry cough, fever, extreme fatigue and muscle ache, and other symptoms of a respiratory infection, and is just a spike in blood pressure, it is much more likely you are suffering from stress and anxiety and are raising your blood pressure that way.

    Yes, high blood pressure is one of the many symptoms that present. As medical personnel are learning more and seeing more patients more symptoms are being recorded. It is still considered primarily a respiratory disease, but so many other systems are also involved with symptoms.

    Any systemic illness can cause blood pressure changes. Fever and pain can increase blood pressure. Dehydration and worsening infection can lower it.
