During the call, the Duchess said the following: "On World Asthma Day, at a particularly daunting time, I would like to thank everyone going the extra mile to provide comfort, advice and treatment to those living with asthma.

Services offered by charities, including Asthma UK of which I am proudly Patron, have become even more of a lifeline over the past few months, especially for those of you shielding at home. To everyone contributing to these efforts - whether it’s in person, over the telephone or virtually – I know you are under extraordinary pressure to keep people with asthma safe, and you are doing an extraordinary job. Thank you.".

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's World Asthma Day has a special importance for people with asthma, because the disease affects the lungs and airways and these people should receive the support they need, more than ever.
