Abstract
The current COVID-19 pandemic is one of the worst health crisis the world is experiencing since human history, it has claimed 6,433,794 deaths world wide as of August, 2022[ WHO Corona-virus Dashboard available at www.covid19.who.int, last visited 17/06/22], the World Health Organization declared on 20th March, 2020 that COVID-19 is a global pandemic, with much excess obscure about the original infection and no viable treatment accessible, the endemic keeps on claiming lives world over and hospitalizing millions if not billions of people, an estimated 2,500 to 11,100 confirmed hospital admissions COVID-19 hospitalized just in august 2022 alone in the United states[ Hospital forecasts available at www.cdc.gov, last visited on 17/08/22 ], researchers have observed that patients with comorbidities were more vulnerable to show symptoms of COVID-19 contraction. Extreme cases were bound to have a danger (50.0%) than non-serious cases (15.6%). Truth be told, various clinically significant prognostic factors related with expanded 30-day all-cause mortality of COVID-19 were distinguished, including expanding age, male orientation, smoking status, malignant growth status.   Cellular breakdown in the lungs in lung cancer (LC) patients address a focal test in clinical finding and treatment dynamic with regards to the profoundly infectious COVID-19 pandemic. Chemotherapy, radiation treatment (RT), medical procedure, and sub-atomic designated treatment are cornerstones in the therapy ahead of schedule and privately progressed LC with great guess. Chemotherapy in addition to designated treatment or immunotherapy has likewise brought significant prolonged suffering to repetitive/metastatic (R/M) high level LC patients leading to hospital admissions and even deaths which is putting a strain on our already overwhelmed medical facilities and workers resulting in dividing attention from major deceases like HIV/Aids, the paper seeks to explore the extent to which Covid 19 effects lung cancer patients in the long term, to achieve this the researcher will implore doctrinal research data from US and EU because of non availability of data from other parts of the world making it relevant to scholars and medical practitioners.
