The Be AWARE initiative promoted by Cittadinanzattiva aims to promote information and raise awareness among the general population about the still existing risks for people with frailty or specific conditions to develop severe forms of COVID-19.
It is important to let people know which conditions and diseases are most at risk of developing severe forms of COVID-19, what to do when the first symptoms appear and how to access treatment for this disease. Among the effects the disease can leave behind is 'Long COVID'. It is essential to pay attention to the 'warning signs' and seek immediate medical advice.
With this aim, we produced a guide entitled 'Covid, Long Covid and Frailty. Let's keep our attention high!", which contains useful information and advice for citizens. Inside the guide: updates on the use of masks, information on vaccinations also for pregnant and breastfeeding women and children, and a section dedicated to pharmacological treatment and prophylaxis for frail patients.
