 The burden of Covid 19 is increasing all over the world. Pidotimod, an Immunomodulator had been used in COPD patients to prevent the exacerbations of COPD and also in the prevention of Recurrent respiratory tract infections both in adults and children successfully. A recent study indicates that the number of COPD cases in India increased from 28.1 million in 1990 to 55.3 million in 2016 [1,2]. The correlation between immune dysfunction and chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD is well established.
