On the other hand, early detection and treatment of the COVID-19 virus will increase recovery chances. It is highly recommended that treatment is administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Other factors such as, age and the presence of other ailment may have a weakening effect on the immune system of the host patient. Age seems to be another significant factor in coronavirus cases.

Therefore, as it affects the lower respiratory tracts, resulting in lung infection, shortage of breath and thus, suffocation. Patients who exhibit shortage of breath are also treated with the necessary medications and the provision of oxygen supply and breathing masks to aid breathing.
