Read time: 2 mins

COVID-19 psycho-social impact of lockdown in patients with IBD

“How did the IBD patient community cope with the lockdown?”, “Which is the real meaning of isolation for a person living with IBD?”, “What is really back to normal meaning? “Which role did the patient associations play in the lockdown”?

These amongst other questions reflect some of the concerns and fears expressed by IBD patients in our recent survey on COVID-19 IBD patients´ perception. EFCCA is aiming to address these questions in collaboration with representatives from its members and Dr Yoram Inspector  at our webinar scheduled for 16 July at 4 PM till 4.45 PM (CEST). 

EFCCA Patient Talks

During the pandemic:

57% of IBD patients feel social isolation

85% were afraid of getting infected from COVID-19

94% think quarantine was important for prevent contagion

98% reduce their daily habits

These are just some of the data issued from the COVID-19 IBD patients´ perception survey

Return to “normality” after lockdown and the isolation during COVID -19 pandemic can have different meanings of our patients’ community.

During our webinar we will talk to Dr Yoram Inspector and present views, perceptions and feedback shared with IBD patients during the lockdown
