COPD and COVID-19
COPD is the 4th leading cause of death in the United States. COPD affects more than 15 million Americans. Approximately 14.8 million adults have been diagnosed with COPD, and approximately 12 million people have not yet been diagnosed. COPD is a preventable and treatable disease characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. The airflow limitation is usually progressive and associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lungs to harmful substances and gases, most notably cigarette smoke. In nearly 8 out of 10 cases, COPD is caused by exposure to cigarette smoke.
The coronavirus or COVID-19 is responsible for more than 600,000 deaths in the United States. In April of 2020, before we had a COVID vaccine, this music and video message was created to tell us that we need to "Flatten The Curve!"
