PCD Live: The COVID-19 and PCD Study

Nov 3, 2021 | Events, News

Join us on Monday 29th Nov to hear about the COVID-19 and PCD study with Dr Eva Pedersen.


What’s the talk about?

The COVID-PCD study was set up in Spring 2020 together with PCD support groups to follow people with PCD through the pandemic. During the past 18 months, more than 700 people with PCD from more than 45 countries have taken part in the study, with over 150 of them from the UK! The data collected through COVID-PCD has helped to find out how many people with PCD got COVID-19 and how severely ill they got.

The study continues and will answer important research questions about PCD that go beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us for the results of this ongoing study that you have been contributing to over this last 18 months!
