Memo from Dr Ronan Kavanagh re COVID-19


There is group of international rheumatology collaborators who are trying to get some support in getting the word out about a shared anonymised registry of Covid infected rheumatology patients.

They have built a Website and put together a team very quickly and are getting ethical approval from UCSF. Website is here http://rheum-covid.org/

They need for rheumatologists who are involved in the care of their patients with Covid 19 infection to enter some anonymised clinical data into the registry to share with their colleagues all over the world.

ACR have agreed to help and endorse the project and they are looking for help from international rheumatology societies.
