Patients with spinal cord injury warned of higher risk from virus

Published: June 10, 2020

Noting that the patients of spinal cord injury are at a higher risk of contracting Covid-19 virus, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre (ISIC), a premier super specialty hospital in the city, has urged the patients to keep themselves in isolation to avoid getting infected of Coronavirus as their bodies cannot respond to bacteria and viruses like a normal person can.

Dr HS Chhabra, Medical Director of Indian Spinal Injuries Centre said that immunosuppression, the body’s response to bacteria and viruses, is the main concern.
