Hi,
In May, an NHS report highlighted the large percentage of diabetics in the Covid 19 death stats & subsequently the high risk for type 1 diabetics.
At a Downing St daily briefing, a member of the public asked if diabetics would now be added to the shielding list. Jenny Harries answer was that this was being reviewed.
Since then I have heard nothing about this review. Several daily papers printed articles about diabetics having to lockdown.
Does anybody have any information on this?
