We have updated our information and guidance about lupus and COVID19 - lupusuk.org.uk/coronavirus/
From today an additional 1.7 million people in England have been added to the "clinically extremely vulnerable" list and advised to shield (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have yet to make an announcement about whether they will do the same).
This means that some people with lupus who previously haven't been advised to shield may now receive a letter. We don't currently know how many people with lupus this may affect.
We have a range of other resources worth checking out too;
