About the EULAR COVID-19 Database

The EULAR - COVID-19 Database is a European paediatric and adult database (in collaboration with the Pediatric Rheumatology European Society (PReS)) to monitor and report on outcomes of “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19) occurring in patients with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). There is an urgent need to understand outcomes of patients who acquire “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2” (SARS-CoV‐2) infection and are receiving steroids, synthetic or biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This will help guide rheumatologists and other clinicians such as specialist nurses in advising and caring for their patients.

We are grateful to our international colleagues who have established the COVID-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance1 and helped us establish this database. Anonymised data will be shared with this international registry, based in the United States.

We encourage rheumatology clinicians from across Europe and other EULAR countries to report ALL cases of COVID-19 in their rheumatology patients, regardless of severity (including asymptomatic patients detected through public health screening). Understanding less severe cases or even mild cases will help us understand further those who develop the most severe form.

We hope you will actively contribute to this voluntary reporting system. Through broad scale participation and collaboration, we will be able to answer these very pressing questions for our rheumatology patients and their caregivers.
