COPD and COVID-19
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. In fact, the name of the virus that causes the illness is Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2). But what if you already have breathing issues like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease? Do you have more reason to be worried?
The good news is, you’re not more likely to contract COVID-19 just because you have COPD. Unfortunately, you’re at much greater risk for serious illness if you do contract it.
