With any respiratory illness, the health of a person’s respiratory system will factor heavily into how a person fares while fighting the disease. Inflamed lungs make it harder for a person to breathe and may worsen pre-existing damage.
Hopefully, you will not become infected with COVID-19 but a healthy lifestyle is always a good idea. If you do become infected, the body is then better able to fight the virus. For starters, this means refraining from engaging in activities that impair lung function such as smoking or vaping. Both of these can suppress the immune system as well.
Exercising can boost respiratory capacity. Improving lung function means that you may have less risk when fighting pulmonary infections.
Diet is another factor. A balanced diet rich in dark green leafy vegetables and fruits may support the body’s immune response.
