J.K. Rowling has chosen to support people affected by coronavirus in a number of ways, including through the free Harry Potter At Home initiative and by pledging to donate her royalties from the publication of The Ickabog book later in the year. For this reason, she is regrettably unable to consider further support for charities or individuals at the moment.
