The queen is interested in the impact of the pandemic on diabetics

The queen spoke with representatives of associations of people with diabetes on Tuesday to learn about their situation and how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted a group that totals six million people in Spain.

In a videoconference from the Palacio de la Zarzuela, Doña Letizia has spoken with the board of the Spanish Diabetes Federation (FEDE), headed by its acting president, Aureliano Ruiz, sources from the Royal House have reported.

Doña Letizia has taken an interest in the work being carried out by associations to give support to the sick in this health emergency scenario.

FEDE representatives have explained that they have had to strengthen their communication channels to “neutralize the false news that has increased substantially” during the crisis.

They have also informed him of the launch of telematic training talks to maintain his work of care for members and their families, according to sources.

The FEDE board, which groups 19 regional federations and 150 local associations from all over Spain, is already working on a new design for the care and services for people with diabetes that will come into operation when the situation returns to normal.
