Are NET patients with lung metastases likely to be affected to a greater degree than the general population by COVID-19? 


This is unknown. We have seen that patients with COVID-19 can develop serious respiratory symptoms like cough and shortness of breath and can require supplemental oxygen in more serious cases. Patients with already compromised lung function from cancer, asthma, COPD may be at increased risk for breathing problems from COVID-19 if they have less respiratory reserves.
