ACT PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: Possible thunderstorm asthma event today

Date: November 23, 2020

The ACT Health Directorate is warning of the potential for a thunderstorm asthma event today (Monday 23 November 2020).

The warning comes as we see elevated pollen levels and the possibility of severe thunderstorms over the next two days, increasing the risk of a thunderstorm asthma event.

Thunderstorm asthma can be triggered by a combination of high grass pollen levels and a particular type of thunderstorm, which causes some people to develop severe asthma symptoms over a short period of time.
