Hopefully, towards the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, we intend to provide a brief overview of the infection, the pathogen, most effective treatment options, lung damage, and the results of TERAVOLT clinical trial, about patients with lung cancer, treated or not-treated, infected by SARS-CoV-2 virus. Tried to summarize the new diagnostic and therapy rules (bronchoscopy, chest x-ray, chest CT), and the potential new vaccinations. Authors provide a brief overview of the treatment of respiratory and cancer patients during infection, the continuation of inhalation drugs, immunotherapy and/or chemotherapy.
