What is the impact of COVID-19 on Multiple Sclerosis patients?

The Hospital Clínic de Barcelona’s Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Department has conducted a study to ascertain the impact of COVID-19 on Multiple Sclerosis patients being monitored in the department during the first wave of the pandemic. The study, which included more than 400 patients, showed a higher infection rate amongst MS patients than in the general population. The evolution, however, was positive.
