A study coordinated by researchers of the Centre for Epidemiological Studies of Sexually Transmitted Disease and AIDS in Catalonia (CEEISCAT) a research group affiliated with and based at the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP) publish a paper in the HIV Lancet showing the risk factors for suffering severe covid-19 for people living with HIV in Catalonia. The results show that people living with HIV at the same time as other chronic diseases and unsuppressed viral loads have a higher risk of suffering severe covid-19 and should be given priority for testing, medical management and vaccination programmes to protect against SARS-CoV-2.
