A new study in New York City has revealed several key findings related to the Coronavirus and those who were hospitalized from it.
Here are the common trends among patients;
- 53% of patients that were hospitalized struggled with hypertension (high blood pressure.)
- 42% of patients struggled with obesity.
- 32% of patients had diabetes.
The study indicated that most of the patients who had to be put on ventilators eventually passed away, and the majority of those patients had diabetes.
Of the 2,600 patients seen in the hospital, 12% of those patients were put on ventilators. Of that 12 % placed on ventilators, 88% died.
Physicians are urging individuals with those co-morbidities, including high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity to take extra precautions.
Are you struggling with any of these? If so, what extra precautions are you taking?
