Why are the elderly so vulnerable to COVID-19?

Professor Arne Akbar from University College London will address the vulnerability of the elderly to COVID-19 in a webinar organised by the British Society of Immunology. In the webinar he will discuss the immune changes that occur during ageing, resulting in the severe effect COVID-19 has in older individuals. He will discuss current hypotheses based on the available data on COVID-19 and the crucial questions that the scientific community needs to address.
