04 May 2020

The World Stroke Organization is continuously monitoring the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on patients and stroke care. This article summarises the key challenges and issues that have been highlighted in our member survey and in emerging data around the world. A pattern of reduced acute stroke admissions is a concern and WSO calls on governments and healthcare agencies to take every effort to ensure that people continue to seek emergency treatment for stroke symptoms.
