    Dear All,

    many people with undiagnosed diabetes or prediabetes may suffer from COVID-19 infection. It is possible to assess diabetes/prediabetes risk using a non-invasive risk test, e.g. widely used Finnish Diabetes Risk Test (FINDRISC). Therefore, we have initiated a platform for such an assessment.
