For patients under age 65, the risk increased to 3.3 times higher, as compared to those who tested negative, and 2.8 times higher, as compared to those with mild symptoms.

About 20% of the deaths were for respiratory or cardiovascular causes, which are typically linked with coronavirus complications. The risk of death from respiratory disease was 4.5 times higher for those with severe COVID-19, as compared to those who tested negative. Similarly, the risk of death from heart issues was 3 times higher.

The other 80% of the deaths stemmed from a wide variety of reasons that aren’t typically associated with the coronavirus. Patients likely had an overall decline in their health that left them vulnerable to other illnesses and diseases, the study authors said. headtopics.com
