Dr Javier Cortés speaks to ecancer about the current COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on breast cancer care.
He emphasises that breast cancer is also a deadly disease in addition to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and these patients should not be forgotten about during the course of this pandemic.
Dr Cortés believes that crucial treatments for HER2-positive and triple-negative metastatic breast cancer should not be delayed. There is currently scarce evidence to suggest that immunotherapy has an adverse effect on patients with COVID-19.
He outlines how patients should be carefully managed during the course of the pandemic.
