Updated global COVID-19 advice for people with MS
Our global advice on COVID-19 and MS has been updated, following extensive consultation with MS neurologists and research experts from MSIF’s member organisations and the MS community.
Key changes to the advice include specifying which groups of people with MS are most at risk of a severe case of COVID-19 and reformulating the information provided on the use of disease-modifying therapies during the pandemic.
You can see the full advice (in English) here: www.msif.org/covid19. Feel free to include this updated advice on your websites and share with your networks.
I know many of you translated previous versions of the advice. If you would like to support with translating the updated advice, please let me know. We will signpost to all translations from our COVID-19 and MS landing page.
