Niet iedereen met overgewicht loopt extra risico bij een besmetting met Covid-19. Vooral een grote buikomtrek is riskant. Minder belangrijk is vet rond de heupen. Dat blijkt uit recent onderzoek in Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland. Dat is een extra motivatie om in het nieuwe jaar af te vallen. ´De plaats waar het vet zit is belangrijk voor het risico op een ongunstig beloop bij Covid-19´, aldus Cathelijne van Zelst, arts-onderzoeker.
Hermelijn Smits (LUMC) has been elected as the NRS president for the coming 2 years last month.
Many patients who have had COVID-19 continue to have health complaints for a long period of time. The long-term effects of the damage caused by the virus and the body's response to it is unclear. A team of researchers, private parties and patient representatives will investigate how these complaints develop and which factors can predict them in future patients. The project is co-funded by the PPP Allowance made available by Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (Health~Holland).

Pneumo Update Europe will organize a free live update on COVID-19 by Germany's top respiratory specialists on April 9th, 2020 at 20:00-21:30 (8-9:30 pm CET). Due to their underlying condition, patients with Asthma, COPD or allergies which target the airway are especially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. What infection risk in general and, specifically, which targeted therapies are important for this risk group?
An American Thoracic Society-led international task force has released a guidance document to help clinicians manage COVID-19 patients in the face of a worldwide pandemic and minimal empirical evidence to guide treatment.
The NRS will be involved in the plan of the LAN and Lung Foundation Netherlands to study the long-term effects of infection with the coronavirus, and to set up a proper infrastructure for survivors.
