People who smoke and suffer from COPD are more vulnerable to COVID-19 complications

Active smokers who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are more likely to present serious forms of COVID-19.

While studies continue, different guides have been created with recommendations for achieving the best treatment possible for patients with EPOC who have been infected by COVID.
