Is there a relationship between Periodontal Disease and Covid-19

I have been searching for answers in regard to patients that have Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease) and the severity of their Covid-19 case.  The severity of the Covid-19 case included ICU admissions, Assisted  Ventilation, and even death. Very interesting conclusion. Please look at the pubmed abstract.  It appears there is a relationship.
