In brief: Trigger factors

Trigger factors come in types: if you have an immune problem (iga), asthma, allergies or similar lung predisposition you will.
If you smoke/work around fumes/etc. You might. If you hang around sick people you might. If your diet & rest patterns are unhealthy you might. If you work on what you can avoid/get vaccinated & follow a healthy lifestyle you give yourself the best chance of avoiding it.
