How do you protect yourself from coronavirus if you have cancer ?

The extremely vulnerable people with cancer are more at risk of being seriously ill if they develop the COVID-19 infection.

If you are extremely vulnerable, you should stay alert to prevent yourself from getting ill. Stay aware of the numbers of infections in your area and follow the advice for extremely vulnerable people in your part of the country. In general, you should:

  • Stay at home
  • limit contact with others outside your household
  • Follow strict social distancing – stay at least 2 metres apart or 1 metre with a face covering
  • Wash your hands regularly or use a hand sanitizer alcohol gel 
  • Wear a face covering inside shops and on public transport, unless you are exempt

According to the Nigeria Center for Disease Control , right now in Nigeria, the numbers are increasing ! People in this group will need to follow particular measures called shielding. Your GP or healthcare team might ask you to shield again depending on your situation.

Cancer patients in the extremely vulnerable group include those:

  • having chemotherapy
  • having radical radiotherapy for lung cancer
  • Those with cancer of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who are at any stage of treatment
  • If you are having immunotherapy or other continuing antibody treatments for cancer
  • If you are having other targeted cancer treatments which can affect the immune system, such as protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors
  • Those who have had bone marrow or stem cell transplants in the last 6 months, or who are still taking immunosuppression drugs

If you are unsure what treatment you are having and whether you are in one of these groups and you are finding it difficult to speak to your care team you can use our patient navigator service , for guidance and support.

Recently , health experts have found little evidence that those infected with COVID-19 will contract it again. While you may feel fine, it’s important that you still take measures to prevent others from contracting the virus.

Your provider will most likely recommend self-isolation until at least 10 days have passed since you first tested positive assuming you have not developed symptoms within that time.
