As I observe it nobody is trying to pull "wool over the eyes" or minimize the current hazards. The USGS has published information about managing ashfalls. It is not an unmanageable hazard and will be limited primarily to the Ka'u district, perhaps the most sparsely habited and visited district on the island outside of the National Park. Vog is a hazard to a specific few. USGS has links to valuable information on that. Were you, as a victim of asthma, to visit North Kohala for example, you would be hard-pressed to experience anything different from any other day - any other year. Vog is also mostly absent from sea level anywhere - even near Kona, the Kohala resorts near Waikoloa and the Hamakua coast. There are many areas of this huge Island of Hawai'i that will have no impact whatsoever from Kilauea aside from a minor rumble or three.

You may, indeed, need to carefully plan and/or limit activities for your personal reasons, and resources are available for you to do that. However the mischaracterization of the situation now rampant in social media is of no value to you or anyone else. Knowledge is power - the power to master unusual circumstances, and to separate the usual from the unusual in this case. Seek knowledge first.

Oh, how I would trade with someone choosing to stay on the mainland for a trip to the Orchid Isle!

Much Aloha!
