This week we have jumped into the Guardian’s latest release of Science Weekly to get an insight into how vulnerable asthma patients are during this pandemic. Regular Science Weekly host Nicola Davis is joined by Dr Andrew Whittamore – Clinical Lead at Asthma UK.

Nicola and Dr Whittamore discuss what this pandemic means for asthma patients and how important it is to not neglect their own medical needs over fears of using up scares healthcare resources during this time.

For our self-help / family help tip this week we are going to pull on the expertise of fitness, food and mental wellness guru Karl Henry. In this episode Karl is joined by leading child psychologist David Coleman who shares his tips on how we can open communication channels to kids of all ages. We love the chicken analogy!

To finish up this edition on a bright note, over the long weekend messages of thanks and support from the public were projected on the side of The Mater Hospital, Dublin to show our healthcare heroes we are behind you all!
