Asthma and corona (hereafter referred to as COVID-19) are diseases that attack the human respiratory system. Asthma is a chronic disease characterized by constriction and inflammation of the airways and is influenced by heredity or genetic factors. Accompanying symptoms other than shortness of breath are coughing, and wheezing or wheezing. While COVID-19 is an infection of the respiratory tract due to the Corona virus. The main symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. But sometimes asymptomatic or only in the form of mild symptoms such as colds, nasal congestion, muscle and joint pain, headaches, and so on.
So related to your question, distinguishing asthma or COVID-19 only from the symptoms of shortness of breath is certainly difficult to do, must go through other examinations that support physical examination and support such as blood tests, chest X-rays, serology, and others. It's just that, shortness in asthma usually occurs due to exposure to allergens or triggers such as cold, fatigue, dust, and so on (in your case the fur material on a blanket or doll).
