Public Panic Over COVID-19 Harms Vulnerable Communities
Like most patients living with pulmonary fibrosis (PF) and thus, a compromised immune system, Charlene Marshall can’t help but worry about the rapid spread for COVID-19. Knowing the risks associated with contracting the virus as a patient with decreased respiratory function is worrisome, but similar to Christie Patient (author of this column), Charlene Marshall is encouraging others to make smart decisions about COVID-19.
Public panic doesn’t help anyone, and hoarding supplies leaves many of us even vulnerable by not being able to obtain what we need to keep us and other immunecompromised populations safe.
As a patient living with IPF/PF, how are you feeling about the COVID-19 outbreak? What is helping ease your mind?
