Scientists at Oxford University in the UK named factors that increase the risk of death when infected with SARS-CoV-2. This was reported in the journal Nature.


The researchers analyzed data on more than 17,000,000 adults and 10,926 deaths among 40% of all patients of the National Health Service of Great Britain.

Scientists from Oxford found that men, old people and people living alone are 1.59 times more likely to die from COVID-19.

In addition, African and Asian descent is also associated with an increased risk of mortality. People over 80 years of age have a 20 times higher risk of dying from coronavirus infection than people aged 50-59.

Dangerous factors also include obesity, diabetes, severe asthma and other respiratory diseases, chronic diseases of the heart, liver, neurological and autoimmune diseases.

However, researchers emphasize that all these factors are not necessarily the cause of serious complications.
