Punctured lung affects almost one in 100 hospitalised COVID-19 patients.

As many as one in 100 patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 develop a pneumothorax – a ‘punctured lung’ – according to a study led by Cambridge researchers. “Doctors need to be alert to the possibility of a punctured lung in patients with COVID-19, even in people who would not be thought to be typical at-risk patients,” says Professor Stefan Marciniak from the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research.
