Study Reveals Hypertension and Obesity Are the Most Common Comorbidity Amongst Covid-19 Patients’ #infographic

A CDC research found hypertension in adults hospitalized for COVID-19 to be the most common underlying medical condition. According to the findings, nearly 60 percent of coronavirus-affected patients had hypertension, while 25 percent said hey was diagnosed with it.

On the contrary, 45% of COVID-19 patients were suspected of having hypertension or higher blood pressure levels-but the diagnosis has not been confirmed.

Obesity and cardiovascular issues were other common comorbidities among the coronavirus-hospitalized patients in America.

Pre-existing lung disorders and asthma among the patients were identified somewhat – but the figures were lower than those of other disorders.

A related research published in the American Medical Association Journal also analyzed 5,700 COVID-19 hospitalized patients in New York City and found that 56.6 per cent suffered from hypertension and 41.7 per cent from obesity.

The above-mentioned studies have several limitations including observation length, geographic location and incomplete records. But it is a start and researchers are optimistic that in the future it may lead them to an accurate analysis of the COVID-19 patients.

The USA has been the hardest hit with 1,01 million infections and 56,634 deaths from the novel coronavirus pandemic, while the world figure tops 3,073,509 cases – leaving health officials across the globe struggling to treat patients, perform tests and eventually find a cure!
