COVID Update on Older People

You are receiving this mail because you worked with us on developing the proposal for a Decade of Healthy Ageing (2020-2030). In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic we wanted to update you on resources related to older people.
 
Older people are at higher risk for more serious complications from COVID-19. COVID-19 is a new disease and we are learning more about it every day.
 
WHO is publishing guidance, recommendations and advice to health authorities and individuals on a regular basis.
 
Here are links to some of the key materials that relate to older people.
