HKMSS Recommendations on COVID-19

In the past few months, Hong Kong and the rest of the world have been hit by COVID-19, a new coronavirus that can lead to serious airway and lung infection. Our local healthcare community has received many inquiries from patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorders (NMOSD) regarding their risks of contracting COVID-19.

The HKMSS has therefore compiled recommendations for both MS and NMOSD patients, which are placed under the ‘Public Resources’ category under ‘COVID-19’ on the menu bar. You may also follow this link to access them.

During the ‘A Life Story of MS and Music’ event held on 19 May 2018, local renowned sand art painter Hoi Chiu gave us a wonderful sand art performance titled ‘Journey of MS’. You may now see the entire performance captured on video here!

On another note, as of 27 Oct 2018, Dr. Richard Li has taken up chairmanship of the Hong Kong Multiple Sclerosis Society. We would like to thank Dr. Winnie Wong for her leadership in the past 2 years!
