Listen to Dr. David Rubin (@IBDMD), Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago Medicine and Chief of the Section of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, as he provides an update for patients (and all of us!) on SARS-CoV2, COVID-19, and what we know and how we can get through this together. His presentation includes the science behind the virus and its spread, information about how the virus affects patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and an update on the plans for vaccination. He also answers many common questions about testing and going to school or work during the pandemic. Everything you want to know!
This was first presented on September 9, 2020. Some of the data on numbers of patients affected or hospitalized is out of date, but none of the recommendations for patients has changed.
