Asthma UK has some useful guidance regarding coronavirus https://bit.ly/2JpWP1M

We are aware that inaccurate information is circulating regarding rescue packs for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

A rescue pack is not required under the current circumstances and you do not need to contact us for a rescue pack unless this is something that has been previously agreed and prescribed by your medical team.

You should continue to manage your asthma in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or call 111 (online services should be used as a first choice) before doing anything else.
