Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak started in late 2019 and developed into global pandemic by March 2020.

In some countries, this virus is spreading very quickly with some people dying from it. Even though this disease is new and information about its spread and possible complications in SCD is unknown, it is crucial to avoid catching this infection or spreading it to those around you.

SCD is considered an immuno-compromised condition, which makes those living with sickle cell disease more susceptible to infections.
We hope this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic comes to an end soon but at present, there is no timeline for Covid-19, therefore it is advisable to take precautions to stay healthy.
