Abstract: In 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, posing risk to high-risk communities, such as people living with severe asthma. We rapidly reviewed COVID-19 information available online for people with asthma, to assess whether information aligns with risk communication and asthma self-management guidelines. Information from five English-speaking countries and global websites providing COVID-19 information for people with asthma (including those at high-risk of severe disease) were downloaded. Informed by the World Health Organization (WHO) emergency risk communication guideline and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence asthma guidelines, 102 webpages from 43 unique organisations that provided asthma-related health information were analysed. We found that COVID-19 online information for people with asthma largely followed the WHO emergency risk communication guideline and provided some asthma self-management strategies.
