Default MG in Asia

Does anyone have any stats on how many Asians have MG and how it is becoming more pronounced in Asia? Many doctors are now scrambling to figure out even how to deal with this disease. What has been your experience?

Default No One Had MG In Asia?

Nobody has MG in Asia? Not a single post about the amount of cases happening in Asia... I wonder why?

My Mood: MG in Asia

Default

From a PubMed search ("myasthenia gravis" and "Asia") I can not find any systematic analysis of the prevalence of MG in Asia.

Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I am dealing with the English language barrier here as well for other posts in SE Asia. It is prevelant here and many have it. However, they do not understand it unless the Dr. has been to the west to learn about it in their studies. Many go undiagnosed I see. Sad for them. Seeing by the number of people looking at this post, it is obviously a concern for many........

Default Wuhan Virus and MG

Anybody know the impact of the Wuhan Virus on MG sufferers? The virus is spreading rapidly throughout Asia and I imagine if you already have MG, your are in a weakened immune state if on steroids etc. N95 mask are running out here, and or being sold at a 400% mark up in some cases. Protect yourselves.
