COVID-19 is a new disease and there is now emerging information regarding risk factors for serious illness.
Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions or chronic diseases, including diabetes and obesity, may be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
SWEET partner EASO has developed some useful tools to support our stakeholders and partners during this time. We are learning more about COVID-19 every day; this information will be updated regularly. Included here are guidelines for self-isolation, patient guides, helpful infographics on energy intake, mental well-being and nutrition.
