A study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology looked at records from 1,500 patients with COVID-19 from ten hospitals affiliated with Northwestern Medicine. The study looked at the effects of asthma in patients and used models that took into account age, sex, ethnicity, and other risk factors such as smoking and obesity. What the study found was that there was no difference in odds of hospitalization between people who have asthma and those who don't.

According to Dr. Anju Peters, a professor of medicine at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, and co-author of the study, "We would usually expect for asthmatic patients to have worse outcomes, as viral illness often can set off asthma exacerbations. More studies must be done to look at the underlying immune modulation caused by asthma or asthma treatment to see what impact it may have on COVID-19 outcomes".

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
