CARVALHO, Jóni Costa et al. Asthma and COVID-19: Current evidence. Rev Port Imunoalergologia [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.2, pp.97-109. ISSN 0871-9721.

The relationship between asthma and COVID-19 is not completely understood yet. We here review the publications on the interplay between these two diseases, as available on the article submission day. The preliminary results did not find a conclusive association between asthma and an increased risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection or severe COVID-19. However, important differences have been found between studies performed in various locations. SARS-CoV-2 infection does not seem to cause asthma exacerbations, and certain typical asthma signs like wheezing were not described in COVID-19 patient series. The susceptibility and risk for COVID-19 in asthma patients may vary according to the patients’ age, asthma severity, asthma control, phenotypes/endotypes, or current treatment. Studies analysing COVID-19 specifically in asthma patients will be required to evaluate the real impact of COVID-19 in asthma
