Asmatics,

What precautions are you taking?

The guidelines given by the Hse and local health services are what we are all trying to abide by.. Be more aware and less socially interactive seem to be major things.. Please call your own gp, call first is important, get advice over the phone for your own specific circumstances

Personally, I'm taking my brown inhaler every day even though I don't usually need it. Follow the recommendations on social isolating and contact your gp if you feel unwell.
The AsthmaUK site has good guidelines

My GP told me asthmatics not doing too badly with corona and blood pressure of greater concern. Probably all conjecture and anecdotal at the moment but still.

I am completely freaked to be honest. Have bad asthma, prone to bad chest infections. Have pneumonia several times when I was younger, intensive care once.

Currently on serotide, ventolin and reasonably fit for someone my age.

I am away from shops and doing advanced social distancing.

I think thats all you can do for now. Hopefully we get a good summer and it subsides. Best wishes.
