Coronavirus (COVID-19) information for people with NMD

As there are currently no guidelines available for people with NMD on Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to share some general information on the disease with focus on some NMD specific diseases. People with special health care needs, especially those with immune or neuromuscular problems, or with chronic illnesses, such as asthma, diabetes, or cancer, might be more likely to have complications from COVID-19. They might need to avoid crowds or large gatherings more than other people. As the development of the disease and situation on the COVID-19 changes very quickly, some of the materials provided might change in the future.
