This Saturday, the World Duchenne Organization hosted a webinar to facilitate the questions to clinicians on the current novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak and how this affects the Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy community. We have collected the frequently asked questions and have clustered them. Then we asked DMD experts to provide their input.
The webinar is available in the following translations:
The webinar is hosted by Elizabeth Vroom (chair) and Suzie-Ann Bakker (communications coordinator). The clinicians who provided input are Prof. Dr. Eugenio Mercuri, Prof. Dr. Francesco Muntoni, Prof. Dr. Jonathan Finder and Prof. Dr. Nathalie Goemans.
Patient organizations are free to translate the webinar in their own language, and share the materials as much as possible.
Please note that this is a general guideline and a lot depends on the current situation in your country. In any doubts, contact your clinician. For more specific information about the topics you can watch the webinar below, or read the full transcript. The slides can be found here.
