The article talks about how monsoon season will bring respite from heat but is bringing risk of asthma in children. Dr Sandeep HS comments “children are at risk of contracting viral infections and kids under 5 years of age could have asthma attacks as well. “With the onset of rains, the chances of a respiratory infection may increase which can trigger an asthma attack. Bronchial asthma is a common respiratory problem throughout the world. We get close to 12 cases per month during monsoon.”
