Sumary of Asthma charity fears sky-high pollen levels, hot weather and thunder storms could prove deadly:
- A toxic cocktail of pollen, storms and heat may put millions of asthma sufferers at risk in the coming days.
- The coming triple threat prompted charity Asthma + Lung UK to today urge people with asthma to be on their guard.
- About 1,400 people died of an asthma attack in 2018 according to an analysis by charity Asthma UK, the most recent data available.
- As these particles fall back down to earth they can travel deeper into people airways, potentially triggering or exacerbating an attack.
