If you have moderate-to-severe or uncontrolled asthma, recovering from COVID-19 may be more challenging. That is why it is important for patients with asthma to maintain good control of their symptoms. Well-controlled asthma means you have very few, if any, symptoms of asthma, and you can perform daily activities without shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing or wheezing.
Your physician or advanced practice provider can review your medical record to help you understand your personal risk. More information about asthma and COVID-19 is available from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI).
Here are answers to some common questions you may have. This information might change as we learn more about COVID-19. If you have other questions, talk with your physician.
