As you may already know, SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19, is a virus that attacks the respiratory tract. While the exact fatality rate of the virus still remains unknown, it is believed to have a higher fatality rate than seasonal flu. In addition, it is possible to carry the disease without displaying symptoms, which means it can be easily and unknowingly passed from one person to the next.
Certain groups of people are at a higher risk of death if they contract COVID-19. These include those with respiratory conditions, cancer, diabetes and other underlying conditions. The same is true for the elderly or anyone with compromised lung function. Individuals who engage in certain activities, such as smoking, vaping or using other types of drugs are also at an increased risk of contracting the virus and experiencing serious complications.
Clearly, we are still learning more about COVID-19, but we at Advanced Spine & Rehab are dedicated to remaining current on this important pandemic so we can provide the most accurate information to each of our patients. If you have questions or concerns about COVID-19 or generally have medical issues that need to be addressed, contact us today to learn more about how we can help!
