Spread the word: scarves can save lives, says Asthma UK

Charity Asthma UK has launched the #Scarfie Campaign to urge healthcare professionals to tell people with asthma that wearing a scarf over their nose and mouth can reduce the chance of them having an asthma attack, which can be triggered by cold air.

File 223846Sonia Munde, head of Helpline at Asthma UK and a senior respiratory physiotherapist, pictured above, said: ‘Plummeting temperatures and an abundance of cold and flu viruses put people with asthma at an increased risk of a life-threatening asthma attack.

‘We are urging all healthcare professionals to help us share the message that something as simple as a scarf could help save a life.’
