Covid 19 & Reopening Society

I am a mid level quad and had numerous lung complications when I was injured many years ago.  I was told that my lungs (as a C5/6 quad) work at about half capacity.  While I have not seen anything specific I am assuming that I am more susceptible to getting Covid 19 and that I am at high risk for serious consequences if I did.  Is that true?  If so, I am feeling like even when the world starts to reopen I need to maintain strong social distancing/quarantine until a vaccine is developed, or at least until a strong proven treatment is found.  I am curious as to your thoughts on this.  It could have very long term implications to those who are very vulnerable as well as the people they live with.

    Ditto, have the same concerns. Would like to see statistics about SCI patients with coronavirus, if any have been published yet.
