Since Ocrevus knocks out the immune system (B cells), is the Corona Virus fatal to patients that use Ocrevus?
How long after using Ocrevus does the immune system recover?
This is a question I would encourage you to talk with your doctor about, or with the folks at the ocrevus support program. They can be reached here: Ocrevus Connects

Thank you Jess!
I contacted Genentech and the RN told me that they have no information regarding the effect of the Coronavirus to a Ocrevus user, and reccomended that I contact my doctor. I contacted my doctor and am waiting for a response.
We were just provided a bit of additional information about corona virus and MS- while not ocrevus specific, you may find it helpful:
