Episode 141: How COVID-19 Affects People With MS with Dr. Robert Shin

Publication date: May 11, 2020

For the past 8 weeks, we’ve been talking about COVID-19 and MS, but there hasn’t been any real data on the effect of COVID-19 on people living with MS. That’s finally changed, and we’re beginning to see some limited data here in the U.S., as well as data coming out of Italy. My guest is Dr. Robert Shin and we’re talking about what the experts are learning from this newly-published data about the effect of COVID-19 on MS. We’ll also get into whether someone getting Ocrevus infusions today should be worrying about the effectiveness of a COVID-19 vaccine. We’ll talk about the things that people living with MS should be thinking about as our local communities begin to re-open for business. And we’ll get into how the COVID-19 pandemic might affect MS care in the future. We’re also talking about the new COVID-19 Emergency Food Assistance Program for people living with MS, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. We’ll tell you about the COVID-19 at-home test kit that received FDA approval last week. It only requires a simple saliva sample, making it a much more user-friendly test. And you’ll hear about the MS disease-modifying therapy that may actually help people recover from COVID-19 faster. We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
