    No mention of the OTHER extremely vulnerable and "high risk" group alongside Diabetics, which makes this article, imho, unbalanced against Asthmatics!
    Asthmatics have been and are still killed by misprescription of Beta-Blockers, which induce chaotic and irreversible acute Bronchospasm and neutralise the Salbutamol inhaler as the Beta2 Adrenoceptors are blocked from receiving the stimulatory messages. Until SELECTIVE Beta2 stimulators and blockers can carefully dance around each other (I do not believe this is possible, nor will be for some time, if at all) we should NOT regard Beta Blockers as a Cocid-19 ameliorating tool... they're simply too dangerous to asthmatics! Also, human error is a factor and ONE Beta Blocker dose will KILL WITHIN AN HOUR!
