Dr Jakub Radocha talks to ecancer about his retrospective analysis looking at COVID-19 infection in 371 Czech multiple myeloma patients.

He reports that around 25% of multiple myeloma patients died after COVID-19 infection and around half required hospitalisation.

Dr Radocha goes on to say that there were very few risk factors that had any effect on survival - older age being one that did have a detrimental effect.
