On Monday recommendation was that PWP have no increased risk of catching CV-19, nor any increased risk if we do catch it - unless we are late stage.
Yesterday advice changed (Govt and subsequently Parkinson's UK) . PWP now come under the Govt category of people who should start serious social distancing and maintain it for a extended period of many weeks.
I understand that we may all be under lock down within the next few days but my question is this:
Are we being put in this category because infection is known to exacerbate PD symptoms and create problems with meds and care or...
Is there something about the disease itself which makes CV-19 more dangerous for us?
I am 50 - fit and active, not on meds yet, mother of 2 teens still at school. Husband is at work for now. Until yesterday I felt that I had the same risks as him, and significantly less than my 83 year old mum. Now I'm not sure.
Glad you're there!
