Corvid19 Webinar - Information från World Duchenne organization


This Wednesday, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. We strongly recommend all organisations and families to respect the WHO and local authorities guidelines and show solidarity with vulnerable people, by practicing proper hygiene and limit social interaction.

Due to the increasing concerns regarding this virus for people with Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy, the World Duchenne Organization is hosting a webinar on Saturday 16:00 CET.

This webinar is of interest for patients and their carers, clinicians and patient organisations.

During this hour-long webinar, the following topics will be addressed by clinicians:

1.What the COVID-19 is, and what you can do to decrease chances of infection.

2.What this means for people affected by Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy.

3.Considerations if you/your child is on steroids, ventilation or other interventions

We will collect specific questions that will be addressed in a follow-up webinar

Please find the login details below. For those unable to attend, the recording of the webinar will be made available shortly after.
