The WHO has advised that people with diabetes are more vulnerable to COVID-19 infection and are more likely to become very ill if they do contract the Coronavirus. If your diabetes is untreated, your weakened immune system can make you more susceptible to an infection like COVID-19.
That is why it is more important than ever to continue taking your diabetes medication. If you think you may have diabetes, get checked and if necessary, start treatment as soon as possible.
If you are stable on your medication, ask your nurse about registering for the CCMDD service so that you can collect your medicine quickly and easily from over 200 pick-up points around Durban.
