Rubbish. "Proper" asthmatics can wear masks as masks do not restrict breathing. Any perception of breathing difficulties is purely psychological. And if you have such psychological problems, wear a face shield or shop online. Time to stop making excuses and pandering to mask snowflakes.

How do asthmatic health care staff so easily wear their masks for much longer periods than someone doing some shopping, There are also clear face shields available. So no excuse for any one not to be wearing something.

I am a Doc and an asthmatic. My wife is a Nurse and also suffered in the past with asthma. We both wear masks to shops and pretty much anywhere when we are out and about, without experiencing any distress whatsoever.

Wrong. Not all proper asthmatics are unable to wear a mask. My dad is asthmatic and has COPD, so falls into the exempt category. However, he can still wear a mask, but removes it if it causes him an issue.

Being in an exempt category does not mean you should not wear a mask, it means you should wear a mask unless it causes you difficulties.

It depends on what level of asthma you have you plumb.

Rubbish. I have had asthma all my life (I am nearly 60); I have been hospitalised on several occasions due to asthma attacks, and have to take drugs every day (for life), as well as use two inhalers. I think that qualifies me as a "proper asthmatic". I also wear a mask - encouraged by my GP. It/s not easy, but it's a lot easier than coping with COVID would be, as well as respectful to others.

Absolutely not true. Even severe asthmatics can (and do) wear masks with no problems. As someone else has said, it's psychological!!

I've never been able to wear a mask for a number of reasons, but I've spent months getting accustomed to wearing one.

There are VERY few conditions that create a proper medical need not to wear a mask - VERY few.

In asthmatic patients the airways collapse on exhaling not inhaling meaning that masks would not impede respiration. ie they have trouble breathing out old air rather than breathing in new air. I think everyone should wear a mask as its only for a few moments and to be fair , those patients are more at risk from Covid.

If you are a "Proper asthmatic" then you are in one of the highest risk categories for respiratory infections - so going shopping without a mask is extremely unwise.
In the unlikely event that a mask does restrict your breathing (and if you're that ill you should really be self isolating) then try a different type of mask, or at the very least, a face shield.

Can the supermarkets not make it part of their terms and conditions for entering the premises and shopping that face coverings/masks must be worn? Medically exempt without a Hospital/Doctors letter. How can it work if you just say the words "medically exempt" no proof required. Maybe Pandemic planning should include stuff like this in future?
It can't work, and is not legally enforceable.

You can't refuse service for people who are exempt because of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1995/50/contents
You also cant expect someone to "prove" they are disabled, again because of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
Therefore, this is unpoliceable.

My father hasn't got internet, mobile phone or TV. His nearest relatives are 80 miles away and he hates his neighbours. Luckily he can wear a mask and is in the top 3 priority areas for a vaccination. However, there are a lot of people being quite quick to judge on other people's circumstances without any knowledge of them. Some people are exempt from wearing a mask but still need to shop.
Do people REALLY believe none of the 300,000 + people who contracted Covid last week were mask wearers ?

Of course they were,even the Government admits that it is less than 10% of the population that DON'T wear masks.

So over 270,000 mask wearers caught Covid last week alone,

Indeed - they should be giving out vaccine certificates with ID details and date, type, location of vaccine - pretty basic stuff that will be needed as we go forwards.
i'm afraid you don't understand what the "vaccination" does. There will be no vaccine 'passport' because the vaccine doesn't stop you getting it nor passing it on. So having the jab will have no impact on transmission.
they are lying to you when they say the vaccine is the way out. it is not. the way out is mass non-compliance.

those who say 'i can' t wear one' im asthmatic. Well, i am slightly asthmatic and i struggle with the discomfort but when you persevere, it gets easier. Also, even more reason to protect one self anyway you can as if you catch any flu let alone Covid with asthma you'll be in for a rough time. so more reason to cover up. paper ones do not obstruct your breathing, they do no harm,
Since when do we need to take notice of these whingeing morons who don’t want to comply with anything they are told? Same people who no doubt are complaining about the food they receive for free from food banks, still smoking the cigs mind, free laptops for their spiteful brats and now free WiFi.

Cue outrage from the "i know my rights" brigade. Yes, everyone has rights, but also responsibility and thu must be mindful of the rights of others, especially with a more virulent strain of Covid.

Supermarket security will hopefully have a zero tolerance approach.
Exactly. They are the problem. More concerned about being 'advised/told' what to do than the sense behind it. 'Don't you dare tell me what to do..even though it makes perfect sense....I can walk into the Supermarket spitting if I like so F*** Y***'. Removed
