Underlying Preexisting Conditions effecting severity of COVID-19

Pre-existing conditions a glimpse into increased risk

In my last post, I spent some time relaying the actual CDC data estimates for hospitalization and death of the disease COVID-19. If you have not seen the information, please read it, digest it & stare at it.

The CDC estimated death rate if you contract COVID-19 for all ages is .64% and it also increases with increasing age.

Lets presume of those hospitalized and then died there is common characteristics or underlying pre-existing health condition that might exasperate the infection(SARS-COV-2)

As a matter of fact according to the CDC there are several pre-existing “conditions” that play into the most severe outcomes.

CDC Data - I did take the liberty of removing things that are common ailments as your body fights the infection and not technically a “pre-existing” condition, but I will include the link and the data below.

Great News!
Many of these pre-existing conditions are within your control. Start today by eating healthier, going for a short walk, getting outside and enjoying the fall colors, getting some exercise, play some golf, eat more vegetables & enjoy life!

Also if you do not have any of these pre-existing conditions, your ability to fight of the infection of SARS-COV-2 and the disease COVID-19 are excellent, because these stats are indicating the pre-existing conditions.
