HIV Positive Patients Concerned about Corona/Covid-19 Virus

 

It is not known whether the Covid-19 virus behaves differently in people with HIV versus those without.

The recommendations currently are:

 

  • To continue your HIV treatment to maintain a suppressed virus.
  • If you are not on treatment for any reason for your HIV, you should contact us urgently to start this.
  • Ensure you are up to date with your vaccine(s) for pneumonia. (Details of this should be on any clinic letters we have written to your GP, and your GP will have your vaccination record)
  • That you follow the government advice in general for the Covid-19 virus.

We will update this website as we get any new relevant information
