Not true - and great collaboration from clinicians/patients to understand this better!

Wow! An #ACR20 patient poster from @RP_Organization describes how #RPmaskteam made > 300 one-of-a-kind masks to protect the #RelapsingPolychondritis community from #COVID19. The project “created unity among the international #RP communities,” say the campaign’s founders.
