In an interview on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning, family and emergency medicine physician Dr. Nicole Saphier answered your questions about the coronavirus pandemic.

Question: I’m the mother of a 13-year-old daughter with asthma. How are people with asthma dealing with the COVID-19?

“This is a good question because a lot of people have children that have asthma, and cold and flu season is a time of heightened awareness for them,” Saphier said.

“The data in the studies are showing us that asthma isn’t necessarily a risk factor for the more severe symptoms of COVID-19.”

Saphier said that the truth is that any respiratory illness may be exacerbated in those with asthma and in the cases where there are symptoms of shortness of breath, call a doctor.
