Covid 19 and vitiligo

Do you think vitiligo is a disadvantage against the risk of Corona virus threat? I believe the vitiligo may have the risk of thyroid and autoimmunity problems then it may be a risk for such virus attacks. But vitiligo itself is not a risk. Maybe some stress caused by vitiligo is also weakening the immunity. What is your opinion and the expert opinion about?

  • I've had these same questions: since it's classified as an autoimmune that would definitely make it riskier for me in my mind.  My body is already attacking itself, so just by this fact, I'm already compromised.
