I am absolutely terrified of this virus because not only do I have asthma but I also have COPD and I am on oxygen at night because my levels drop in my sleep. And I feel this virus will kill me if I get it. Has anyone else that has these health problems had the virus and survived?

@EvaHY304 Hey, I understand where you're coming from because so much of what we see in the news is scary. But if you're following the CDC guidelines for at risk people, you should be ok. Stay home as much as you can, disinfect your groceries when they come home, avoid public places as much as you can, and you should be fine. It's really important that you take care of yourself physically, but also mentally, because stress is also a contributing factor to asthma issues (I can't speak for COPD since I don't have that). You will get through this, I promise!

@EvaHY304 Hi, I don't know if you saw it, but I think they published an interview on here with someone who got the virus and has asthma. I know I saw it in my emails. I'll try to find it. The guy talked about the symptoms he had and what it was like for him. Maybe it'll help put you at ease a bit.

Found it! The guy fully recovered! I hope that helps you a bit! At least now you may know what to look for!
