What happens when COVID-19 meets other infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria? Particularly in middle- and low-income countries, this is a relevant question. Nevertheless, multimorbidity, the coexistence of two or more health conditions, is in the field of infectious diseases also a growing challenge for high-income countries. What happens to the human body when it is affected by several infectious diseases? How can scientists advise politics and society on coping with the issue of COVID-19 and multimorbidity? International experts discussed these issues on the occasion of an virtual panel discussion on November 26 2020.
The event was moderated by TV journalist and moderator Vivian Upmann, Germany.
