Asthma patients may be at a higher risk of the respiratory complications brought on by infection with the Corona virus or Covid-19. Here’s how you can mitigate your risks of contracting this deadly disease.
First of all, a Covid-19 infection is not just the common cold or flu. From what we currently know of this disease, it is especially more likely to strike the immunocompromised. People with asthma who are already at risk of respiratory distress may be at grave risk of serious complications if they contract this disease. The Centers for Disease Control warns asthma patients of complications from a severe, uncontrollable asthma attack to acute respiratory distress or pneumonia.
If you are an asthma sufferer, please take these precautions.
