Data presented as mean±sd, unless otherwise stated. Patient-reported changes in severe asthma care during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and associated levels of satisfaction with care and changes in care, and patient-perceived effect on asthma control. Higher satisfaction scores indicate better satisfaction (range 1–5, 1=very low satisfaction and 5=very high satisfaction); higher asthma control scores indicate greater agreement with statements that changes in care induced worsening of asthma control (range 1–5, 1=strongly disagree and 5=strongly agree).
