People with

diabetes are not

at high risk to

catch the virus

but if taken ill

will need more

care. So stay

home and stay

safe. By Sue Marshall.

CORONAVIRUS and diabetes

continued over

Diabetes & Covid-19

Listed here are various imporant

references to keep an eye on. Most are

from the UK, but some items and articles

are from other countries. I've included

them as I thought they were useful and

informative.

Please note that the story is on the

move all the time and therefore this

information might have changed by the

time you read it. The main links will be

updated as things change and, hopefully,

improve soon.

Dan Howarth, Diabetes UK's Head

of Care says, "Coronavirus or COVID19 can cause more

severe symptoms

and complications in people with

diabetes. If you have diabetes and you

have symptoms such as cough, high

temperature and feeling short of breath

you need to monitor your blood sugar

closely and call the NHS 111 phone

service. People with diabetes who don't

experience symptoms and have recently

travelled to any of the affected areas need

to follow information on the NHS and

the gov.uk websites, which are updated

regularly and are the most up-to-date

source of information available."
