The Coronavirus is known to affect the respiratory system severely. Individuals who are already suffering from chronic respiratory conditions are more prone to succumb to death if they catch the virus. However, as the virus keeps mutating, it does not merely hamper the respiratory organs but various other parts of the body as well.

Who is a pulmonary physician?

A pulmonary physician or a pulmonologist has a specialization in the respiratory system. Pulmonary physicians are internists who specialize in treating the lungs, windpipe, and other respiratory organs. If you are searching for a good Pulmonologist, you can contact Dr. Meghana Pande at the Life Care Clinic.

A Pulmonary Physician on COVID-19Why is it so difficult to fight the virus?

In an interview with a pulmonary physician, a discussion about the current COVID condition occurred. The physician spoke about why it was so difficult to deal with the virus. The virus does not seem to affect people in a unified manner. Some people do not show any symptoms and can be merely a carrier whereas the virus causes severe destruction in the respiratory system of several others. It is difficult to denote the exact intensity with which the virus will strike an individual.

Who is more prone to the virus?

Even though there is no 100% guarantee, a statistic is formed based on the corona cases. It is understood that the elderly and middle-aged are getting affected severely. The younger generation is somewhat immune, but in recent cases, we find that the virus has victimized individuals within the age group of 20 to 30. People suffering from chronic diseases already have a weak immunity system, and catching the virus might prove to be fatal. Treating Covid-19 patients have been very difficult as there is no fixed cure for the virus yet.

Many people are recovering, but many individuals are also losing their battle against the Coronavirus and succumbing to it. However, due to the advancement of technology, remote treatment of COVID-19 patients has become possible.
