UK statistics on COVID-19 in people with CF
The numbers in the UK are too low to draw conclusions about risk factors or outcomes associated with COVID-19 in cystic fibrosis. We are collaborating globally to learn as much as possible, as quickly as possible.
The cases of COVID-19 in people with CF reported to the UK CF Registry are as follows:
|Number of cases
| Age range
| FEV1% predicted range
| % with no symptoms when tested
| Number recovered from COVID-19
|Number receiving treatment for ongoing infection
| Number of COVID-19 related deaths
If you need information and support about COVID-19 and CF, take a look at our coronavirus help and advice, or contact our Helpline.
Global study on COVID-19 and CF
A global collaboration has published early results of COVID-19 cases in people with CF from around the world. The data suggests encouraging health outcomes for people with CF who have had COVID-19. You can read more about the results and access the report in our news story.
We are also contributing to the European Cystic Fibrosis Society Patient Registry’s COVID-19 monitoring. Read more about the COVID-CF project in Europe.
