Your help is needed - COVID19

The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly infected more than a million people. While most people with COVID-19 infections have mild or no symptoms, a significant proportion of patients can become quite ill. At this time, little is known about how patients with rheumatic diseases, many of whom use medications and drugs that suppress the immune system, are affected by the virus.

What can you do to help? The COVID-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance is calling on people 18 years of age and older with rheumatic diseases, and parents of children with #rheumatic diseases to participate in a survey so that we may learn how best to prevent or treat COVID-19 in this potentially vulnerable population. Patients with rheumatic diseases with or without COVID-19 infection are eligible to participate. All information collected in the survey is completely anonymous and protected. Please follow this link for more information and to take part. #VasculitisUK vasculitis.org.uk/news/covi...

A comprehensive but easy to answer survey. Although described as a survey for rheumatic disease patients, it can also be answered by vasculitis patients with other manifestations, e.g. kidney disease.

Completed...hope it helps

Done. This is a great strategy, the more we understand about the virus and how it effects people with our condition, the sooner we know how to react.
