Research shows 10% of diabetic coronavirus patients die within a week

Although the severity of the coronavirus, which spread from the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019, has been declining for a few weeks, between 50,000 to 80,000 new cases are reported every day. By then, the number of people infected with Coronavirus worldwide had reached more than 5.8 million.

As of the afternoon of May 29, the death toll from Coronavirus had risen to 361,000 worldwide, with more than 100,000 deaths in the United States.

Thousands of people around the world who contracted coronavirus have died of heart disease and other illnesses, according to a new study, which found that 10% of diabetic coronavirus patients who admitted in the hospitals worldwide die within a week of admission.

According to a study published in the Journal of Diabetology, 10% of diabetic coronavirus patients who died within a week of being admitted to hospital.

According to the report, the study looked at 1,300 COVID-19 patients who also had diabetes.

After analyzing the records of these diabetic coronavirus patients, it was found that one out of every 10 diabetic patients died within a week of being admitted to the hospital.

Two-thirds of the diabetics who died were men, while the average age of men and women who died was up to 70, the report said.

Experts said that the age of such patients with coronavirus and the complications of diabetes endangered their lives.

According to the report, Body Mass Index (BMI) means that overweight and obese people need ventilators in similarly complex situations, but such people are also more likely to die.

Similarly, 40% of Coronavirus patients had heart, brain and leg pain and other medical issues, which increased the chances of such patients dying within a week of being admitted to the hospital.

The study found that COVID-19 patients up to the age of 75 who had other illnesses had a 14% higher risk of death than patients over the age of 55.

According to the study, one in five coronavirus patients with heart disease needed a ventilator a week after arriving at the hospital, while one in ten patients died and a quarter of patients admitted to the hospital were discharged.
