More than 8,000 people were treated in hospital. About one in 10 people have asthma in Australia , with about 80% of those sufferers experiencing allergies, particularly to rye pollen.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
