The presenter and singer João Gordo used social networks this Wednesday, 30, to tell his followers that he has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Last Tuesday, the 28th, he published a photo in which he appears with an inhalation mask and an oximeter on his finger with the caption: “Kilometers of cigarettes, mountains of marijuana. Some pass unharmed, others don’t.”

The image ended up worrying some fans. That’s why, in a video, he talked about his health status. “I’m not dying, man. But if I keep ticking, I might die. I have a lung problem. I’m COPD, which is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.”

According to him, the change in temperature ends up making the situation bad. “When the weather changes, winter, I get phlegm and I can’t sleep. I have to inhale and measure with the oximeter on my finger all the time.”

COPD is a type of disease that obstructs the passage of air through the lungs and causes difficulty in breathing. The picture is considered dangerous because there is a possibility that the person stops breathing altogether. Although there is no cure, there are preventions and measures that help keep the situation under control and return some lung activity.
