Nearly 90% of people hospitalized with Coronavirus have these underlying conditions.

For weeks, the world has been overwhelmed with data and information about COVID-19, with little data providing the specificity need to ensure that people are taking the illness seriously. But on Tuesday, the CDC was able to give a closer look at exactly who is most effected by COVID-19- and its findings underscore the importance of preventive measures we’ve all been taking.

The new study published in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality weekly report found that about 90% of patient hospitalized due to COVID-19 had pre-existing conditions- including hypertension, obesity, chronic lung disease, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease.

The CDC recommends that those with underlying health conditions who also have symptoms of COVID-19 – including cough, fever, or shortness of breath- should immediately contact their health care provider.

They also urge individuals to continue to take preventative measures to protect older adults and those with underlying medical conditions from COVID-19, including social distancing, regular hand washing, and wearing face masks in public settings.
