BREAKING: How can the global MS community work together during COVID-19?
Howdy, everyone 🖐️ MS Reporter Dominic catches up with Aaron Boster MD for a very early video call stateside (sorry, Aaron). Their conversation addresses a number of questions we’ve been receiving from people with MS across the globe 🌎❔
Topics discussed in this video: how can you differentiate symptoms of coronavirus from symptoms of MS? How are neurologists working together internationally to share knowledge as they get it? What do we know about the risk factors for MS patients associated with more severe coronavirus cases? Finally, why are registers and clinical data important for the MS research community – and for people with MS?
What’s been discussed in this video may change in the coming weeks. This is a rapidly evolving situation, but at Shift.ms we’re doing all we can to provide the most accurate, current information and advice on coronavirus from trusted experts.
