The past few months have been difficult times for everyone due to the appearance of COVID-19, but especially for those with chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma. The similarity of the symptoms of these diseases, together with the fear of attending healthcare centers due in case of contagion, has caused a real lack of control in early diagnosis and well guided disease- management practice. Let’s see Asthma during COVID-19.
Additionally, cancelled medical visits, clinical tests, follow-up after diagnois has left patients with few ways to work out how they are managing their own health issues, unable to consult their healthcare professionals and resolve their doubts and key concerns.
