COVID-19 Update - 28th May 2020
Covid-19 (Coronavirus) has changed everyone’s daily reality raising questions and concerns within the CF community. The situation evolves very fast in Europe and across the world, and people with CF may be concerned about their health.
The ECFS and the ECFS-Patient Registry are working on the collection of sound clinical data on people with CF having been exposed to COVID-19 in Europe. Reassuring data are now available though they must be considered with caution. Indeed, the collection is on-going and the numbers will be regularly updated. The latest information can be found on the ECFS website: https://www.ecfs.eu/covid-cf-project-europe
A worldwide study was recently published on the Journal of Cystic Fibrosis. Of 40 cases of COVID-19 described in people with CF, 70% have recovered and no death was reported at the time.
