If we treat AR well, parents would know if they need to consult with Dr and possibly test for Covid

This webinar was made possible by iNova Pharmaceuticals.  

Those with allergic rhinitis (AR) and recurrent sinusitis think it is just that again and don’t test for Covid, so they keep spreading the virus. So, if we treat AR well, parents would know if the child has ‘sinus’, they need to consult with Dr and possibly test for Covid.
