COVID-19 continues to disrupt our usual way of life. People with mesothelioma are not immune to the anxiousness and hardships caused by this health crisis.
The economy continues to suffer as many businesses are closed. Markets are uncertain. Sporting events have been canceled or postponed. Social outings are an afterthought. Many cities have asked residents to “shelter in place.” If you have mesothelioma, then you can make good use of this time in isolation. Don’t devote all of your mental energy to the negatives associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
Mesothelioma During COVID-19 Isolation
People with mesothelioma are at risk of contracting a severe case of coronavirus. The virus attaches to your lungs and attacks your respiratory system. The most common type of mesothelioma (pleural mesothelioma) forms near the lungs and often spreads to this organ.
If you have malignant cancer, your immune system is weaker than usual. You’ll have difficulty fighting back against COVID-19 and expelling it from your body. The best way to stay safe from this outbreak is reducing or removing your in-person interaction with others.
Mesothelioma COVID-19 Legal Options
Mesothelioma affects around 3,000 Americans each year. Manufacturers prioritized using asbestos due to its fire-resistant and cost-effective qualities. They preferred this substance despite many knowing it was dangerous to their workers’ health and the health of the general public.
If you or someone you know has mesothelioma, you should consider taking legal action against these corporations. While in isolation, people with this cancer can contact GPW Law to discuss their options.
