SANE comment on schizophrenia as risk factor for Covid-19 death
Added: 27th Jan 2021

Please find below comment from Marjorie Wallace, chief executive of the mental health charity SANE, on US research finding that schizophrenia is a major risk factor for Covid-19 death:

“This study reveals the need for more research into the still unexplained biochemistry of schizophrenia and the wider risks for patients, and further questions those who may deny the medical impact of the illness on other conditions.

“We call on the Government to review urgently these findings, and include people with schizophrenia in those vulnerable groups for early vaccination.”
