Food allergy associated with lower SARS-CoV-2 infection risk

People with food allergies showed lower risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection, whereas those with obesity had a higher risk, according to a study published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
Additionally, results of the perspective surveillance study showed asthma did not positively or negatively impact risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection.
“We know that development of childhood asthma is associated with severe early-life respiratory viral infection and that most asthma exacerbations, both childhood and adult, are related to respiratory virus infection,” Max A. Seibold, PhD,
