Let us tell you that World Asthma Day was celebrated for the first time in the year 1998.
Theme of World Asthma Day 2021
This year’s World Asthma Day theme was “Uncovering Asthma Misconceptions.” That is “to expose the misconception of asthma.” The aim of this year’s theme is to spread awareness about asthma and educate people about the facts and myths of asthma.
Asthma patients should keep these things in mind
1. Follow an asthma treatment plan
If you are suffering from asthma, follow your treatment plan correctly as prescribed by the doctor. Always try to take your medicines on time and be a little careful when you are around people.
2. Avoid staying or going in closed places
Patients with asthma are advised to avoid visiting or staying in places that are not ventilated, as they can cause serious problems. Asthma patients should take as much fresh air as possible. By doing this, it is likely that the patient will not have respiratory problems.
People are using disinfectants more these days to protect themselves in the second wave of coronavirus. But if you have asthma, it is advised that if someone is using disinfectant, then you should stay away from there.
4. Make a distance from smoking
If you are suffering from asthma, smoking may be more dangerous for you during the corona period, because smoking increases the risk of infection of Kovid-19.
5. Avoid traveling
Asthma patients, especially if not required, should avoid traveling, as people with moderate to severe asthma are at higher risk of infection with coronavirus than healthy people.
