View descriptionShare

On Health Suites, Justin Bieber’s recent experience with Ramsay Hunt syndrome has thrown light on the importance of protection against shingles and herpes zoster virus. Shingles, also known as Herpes Zoster, is a painful disease caused by the reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox that can affect up to 1 in 3 people. Additionally, the risk of shingles can be elevated for up to six months after a COVID-19 diagnosis. Melissa Hyak speaks to Dr Leong Hoe Nam, Senior Consultant Infectious Disease Physician at Rophi Clinic, Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital to find out more about this disease and how vaccines are important to protect us against these diseases.
