Together with IPOPI, INGID, APSID, ASID, ARAPID, CIS, LASID, SEAPID we have worked on a joint statement to provide guidance in advising patients with primary immunodeficiency under our care in the current COVID-19 context.
Since the start of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, there has been rapid progress with understanding disease, clinical phenotypes and biology, improving treatment and implementing vaccination trials. Data is accumulating about the impact of COVID-19 for patients with Inborn Errors of Immunity (IEI). The purpose of this statement is to summarise our state of knowledge and set out ESID’s current guidance for professionals in the IEI community in Europe. We will update this statement as evidence emerges.
