If the doctors and scientists haven't got the answer, I sure would not be the one to try and guess a medical reason for it. I have no research before me to make any ethical medical assumptions on this per medication/reasons. The only medical things I present here are taken from documented sources.Debi can you research - figure out this last surprise ? Articles are posting a surprisingly lower amount of deaths among Asthmatics. See articles in NY Times and others such as: "Asthma not common among COVID 19 patients who have died/ Physicians Weekly"
Two Main Factors to consider might include the following:
First, Is asthmatic Rx protective?
•Do you think this might be because some side effects of some asthma rx include blood thinning?
•Or other allergy meds impacts?
•Are studies indicating a pattern of rx such as singular (mononucle something inhibitor) or antihistimines first line asthma treatment is often simply : 1 inhaled cortical steroid (inhaler alone.) so is it the inhaled steroids (cst) & oral steroids? Or is it the long acting bronchial beta agonists (laba) etc such as advair etc maintenance meds? (For ex advair is a combination of laba, & cst)
•Do you have any analysis or information on this odd finding & reasons ?
Second, is it prior nurse & physician taught patient routine monitoring :rx behavior protective?
•Is it the prescribed asthma rx or the taught behavior? •All asthmics parents, and the children & teens themselves were trained by a local allergist to keep (lung)"peak flow charts" using breath out through peak flow measure indicating when to use a rescue inhaler, (not listening for wheeze, cough loudness or relative discomfort) utilizing cheap plastic "peak flow measurement device" instead while taking maintenance asthma rx.
•Many Asthmatic Adults were taught to utilize finger tip oxygen sensors & when to use rescue inhaler (during hazardous air quality.)
Well...I shall find the nearest volcano and cast myself into it.....not.
