The Cordova Virus A Bad Thing For Smoldering Myeloma

The Cordova Virus A Bad Thing For Smoldering Myeloma

Is this new virus a worry for us that have smoldering Myeloma.

A MyMyelomaTeam Member said:

The virus is bad for any kind of myeloma because your immune system is compromised and weak so take all the recommended precautions and stay at home as much as possible and wear a mask if out in public plus wipe everything you get from the store with alcohol wipes when you get home and then wash your hands after that. Yo can not be too safe.

Karen, EVERYONE is at risk, and if you are over 65 you are especially at risk. Self-quarantine for awhile--no one in, no one out of your house. If everyone would just stay home, this thing would not be spread.

Try not to worry, just take all of the precautions that the doctors recommend such as frequent hand washing, sanitize hard surfaces in your home, isolate yourself as much as possible, wear a good mask if you have to go out in public. There are many things you can do to lower the risk. Do what you can do and try not to worry.

Anyone with any cancer has to be extra careful because your immune system is compromised and if you get the virus you will probably get very very sick. Thanks for the hug pop.
