    COVID-19 mainly affects the respiratory system so anyone who has a condition of the mouth, throat and lungs will be at greater risk if they become infected. Having said that, I would suggest that anyone with any kind of long-standing health issue or pre-existing condition should be extra vigilant during this pandemic. Even the healthiest of people have been killed by Coronavirus, so do yourself a favor and don’t get infected in the first place
