Research on Covid-19 among ME/CFS patients


The European ME Alliance (EMEA) invites people to take part in a study to find out whether:

  • ME/CFS patients more often get infected with COVID-19 than other people?
  • people with ME/CFS have other and/or more or more severe symptoms than others?

Internist Dr. Joris Vernooij and Dr. Rogier Louwen of Erasmus University, Rotterdam in the Netherlands, have developed an online scientific research project in which ME/CFS patients with and without COVID-19 and a control group of people around the patients are urged to participate.

The ME/CFS Foundation Netherlands has invited all ME/CFS patient organisations in the Netherlands and in EMEA member countries to participate in the study.

The initiators of the project and all those involved in the research work are working completely pro bono.  Therefore, no costs will be incurred by participants.

It will involve short weekly online surveys.  You will need to register with Erasmus University and will need a mobile phone to receive a passcode.
