USA Today: My brother has daily seizures. COVID-19 restrictions are making him sicker.. “My brother has seizures every day. Sometimes focal ones, where his eyes dart back and forth like he’s rapidly scanning a novel. But lately, they’ve become more violent as my brother’s routine, so tethered to his mental and physical health, has been suspended by the COVID-19 pandemic. The novel coronavirus has seen hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of Americans with intellectual and developmental disabilities removed from their routines and become more isolated. In some cases, the disruption has contributed to them becoming sicker.”
