Asthma is one of the most common chronic respiratory diseases in the world and there is great concern about the effect of COVID-19 infection on asthma severity and control. Although the link between asthma and COVID-19 infection remains to be determined, available data indicate that asthma does not seem to be a risk factor for severe COVID-19. This review aims to summarize the updated data about the association between viral infections and asthma exacerbations including COVID infection and management of asthma flare-ups during the COVID pandemic, based on the recommended asthma guidelines.
