The global Covid-19 pandemic is a worrying time for all of us but particularly people living with lung conditions like asthma and COPD. If you are one of them, it is important to follow the latest government guidelines (https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus) and to do whatever you can to protect yourself from becoming infected with Coronavirus. The government lists people with severe long-term lung conditions, like severe asthma, severe COPD and cystic fibrosis, as being at particularly high risk.

We have just passed the autumn equinox, where there the days start to rapidly shorten. This is a sure sign that winter is coming. Whilst this time of year can be a good excuse to be less active and enjoy indoor activities with friends and family, or be more active if you are into your winter sports, the colder weather can cause problems with our lungs and airways. How can you protect yourself and prevent any regular symptoms worsening?
