From the article:
“Initially, data emerged for 1,003 patients who tested positive for COVID-19. Asthma was significantly associated with longer intubation time in patients between 18 and 64 years of age, but not in the age group 65 years of age and older. The duration of hospitalization was longer among patients with a history of asthma compared to those without this history in patients aged 50 to 64 years, but not in the younger or older age groups. The patients aged 50 to 64 on average spent two more days in the hospital than the non-asthmatics in this age group.
Asthma was not associated with a higher rate of death or with acute respiratory distress syndrome among COVID-19 patients."
