The American Lung Association says that if you have a lung disease like asthma, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, etc., you are not more likely to get sick with the virus. But you are more likely to have a worse outcome if you become sick with COVID-19. If you have a chronic lung disease, measures to avoid getting infected (like social distancing) are especially important.
