Least Covid cases among UK COPD patients

Strict adherence to Covid appropriate behaviour helped COPD patients in the UK to limit the number of SARS CoV-2 infections among them to a minimum.  The latest study by a team of researchers at Sheffield Hallam University found that COPD patients in the UK had a higher tendency to practice Covid-related restriction norms compared to the public at large. The findings of the study, published on preprint server medRxiv, included over 43,000 people aged 18 to 96 years wherein less than 3 percent had a history of Covid-19. The research observed an increased number of COPD patients avoiding gatherings of any size, avoided having guests, or going to work, avoided symptomatic people, did not go out to the stores, and wore face masks despite claims of hindered breathing when outside the home.
