Over a month ago @dominics was keeping us up to speed as Covid-19 was heading to his area and he published daily briefings and had interviews with some experts as well. You can search for his posts and learn much. I know I did.

There was also a website for everyone to log into that had been diagnosed to track the severity and their treatment, etc. I don’t remember the name of that or if the data is available that was gathered…but as it is still likely being gathered it may be a bit too soon. I know that I saw articles and discussions like this:

The impact/risk will be different depending on your overall health, location, DMT choice, etc etc. I don’t know if you watch the You Tube Dr Boster videos but he has put out several on the topic as well as the Barts Group and others. Lots of good info out there:

The link posted by @armyshift of Mark’s blog was great as well. I am convinced that if I contracted (and low chance as I really am playing it safe) I would do better than the average person as my immune system is insanely strong (so bored it attacked itself!) and being on Ocrevus with my B cells depleted my risk of the auto-immune complications are reduced as well.

Hopefully this gives you better information and some reassurance. I’m looking forward to watching for more responses if there have been cases that people just haven’t brought up yet at this point-
