Figure 4: Mortality rates associated with different comorbid conditions. Additional factors that may predispose to increased mortality include morbid obesity, neurodegenerative diseases, and immunocompromised status. Data from Italy demonstrate that 25.1% of mortalities had 1 comorbid condition, 25.6% had two, and 48.5% had three or more illnesses. A report from China demonstrated 15.4% mortality for those with ≥2 comorbidities, compared to mortality of 5.6% for those with one or no comorbid condition[116],[133],[134],[135],[136],[137]
