MORALES-ROMERO, Jaime et al. Asthma and COVID-19 Among Healthcare Workers from a Mexican Hospital: Is There an Association?. Rev. invest. clín. [online]. 2022, vol.74, n.3, pp.131-134.  Epub 30-Sep-2022. ISSN 2564-8896.


Asthma does not appear to be a risk factor for developing COVID-19.


The objective of the study was to analyze the role of asthma as a factor associated with COVID-19 among healthcare workers (HW).


A cross-sectional study was conducted in HW from a Mexican hospital. Data were obtained through an epidemiological survey that included age, sex, and history of COVID-19. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify factors associated with COVID-19.


In total, 2295 HW were included (63.1% women; mean age 39.1 years); and 1550 (67.5%) were medical personnel. The prevalence of asthma in HW with COVID-19 was 8.3%; for the group without COVID-19, the prevalence was 5.3% (p = 0.011). The multivariate analyses suggested that asthma was associated with COVID-19 (OR 1.59, p = 0.007).


Our study suggests that asthma could be a factor associated with COVID-19 in HW.
