s/p covid breahtles: Would follow up with a pulmonologist -lung doctor -as he can do studies to see how well you are breathing as this is serious and heart damage is an issue. He may put you on inhalers to help you breathe and or give you medications or even recommend oxygen. Please go as son as possible. In the interim if you are having breathing issues go to the ER
