An estimated 59 million people are living with diabetes in the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Europe (EUR) Region, which covers 44 countries and territories. Over 1.5 millions cases of COVID-19 have been recorded across Europe and national authorities throughout the region have put in place various restrictive measures to manage and prevent the spread of the virus.
People with diabetes and health professionals in the region have been impacted in many ways. We asked IDF EUR Region Chair, Dr. Niti Pall to share her insights on what the impact has been and how, in the longer term, COVID-19 will shape the lives of people with diabetes and health professionals in the region.
