Muscular Dystrophy Canada's Ask the Expert About Neuromuscular Disorders (NMD) and Covid-19

Printer-friendly version

Muscular Dystrophy Canada has received numerous questions about COVID-19 and how it may uniquely affect people with neuromuscular disorders (NMD). The COVID- 19 virus is still very new and there are a lot of things we don’t know specific to Canadians with neuromuscular disorders, their families, and their caregivers. Researchers are still studying this new coronavirus and how it affects people who are vulnerable. We asked neuromuscular specialists, respirologists and researchers from across Canada and the Neuromuscular Network For Canada (NMD4C) to provide recommendations and information about COVID-19 for people impacted by neuromuscular disorders based on available evidence and to the best of their current knowledge. Please note that these recommendations should supplement, but not replace the recommendations made by your doctor or your local public health authority. Please speak to your healthcare provider if you have any further questions.
