IBD Patient News

Dear SAGES Members

There has been concern from IBD patients on immune suppression around the world about the COVID19 infection and all IBD societies are advising patients to remain on immune suppression.

IBD Africa has a COVID19 document on its website (under Living with IBD) but the situation is changing rapidly so Dr David Epstein has used the IBD Africa Facebook page to keep patients updated. The IOIBD Statement has been posted today.
