Statement on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

Dear EDF members,

The coronavirus (COVID-19) infection is rapidly spreading all over the world and is a big concern for the public health. While ad hoc guidelines are not available yet, dermatologists are facing the dilemma of how to approach patients under treatment with biologics and/or immunosuppressants, or in need for these therapies. Although clinicians can still make individually based decisions, or be guided by their own health service, the EDF invites you to consider the statements released by the International Psoriasis Council (IPC) and the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD).
