Some scary news from the Michael J Fox foundation.
“Of respondents with Parkinson’s, 51 reported a diagnosis of COVID-19. In patients with both diagnoses, 55% reported a worsening of their motor symptoms such as tremor, slowness or imbalance during infection. Slightly more than 50% also reported worsening non-motor symptoms, such as mood issues, digestive problems, pain, and fatigue.”
Ultimately, this is another bit of evidence that we have to take the Covid pandemic seriously. As much as it may pain is to stay away from older or infirm loved ones, we need to keep up safety measures until a vaccine is available.
