Considering the drop in temperature that deteriorates air quality, doctors in Pune city have issued a word of caution for people suffering from lung ailments, especially those who have recovered fromCOVID-19. According to medical experts, deterioration of air quality can also cause complications in patients infected by coronavirus.

Increased level of pollutants in the air can affect people suffering from lung-related disorders such as chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) and COVID-19, prolonging the process of recovery, they said.

A drop in air quality makes it more difficult for COPD patients to breathe. We advise COPD patients and those who have recently recovered from COVID-19 not step out in the polluted air, said Dr Vaibhav Pandharkar, a pulmonologist from Noble Hospital.
Coronavirus disease affects respiratory organs and its effects can be seen even after recovering from the infection.

In some patients, we have seen the development of lung fibrosis, post their recovery from coronavirus. Hence, people suffering from lung disorders and those who have also recovered from COVID-19 should take extra precautions at a time when pollutants in the air have increased, he said. According to Dr Pandharkar, there is an increased risk to the lungs and heart of people suffering from comorbidities.
