A year on from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, psoriasis experts Professor Catherine Smith and Dr Satveer Mahil of St John’s Institute of Dermatology in London provide an update on the global PsoProtect and PsoProtectMe registries, which are helping us learn more about the relationship between psoriasis and COVID-19. The update is split into two videos.
