MOSCOW, April 17 – RIA News. Head physician Of England Chris Whitty listed factors that clearly increase the risk of infection and death in coronavirus infection. A video of his speech is published on YouTube
The first he called the elderly age of patients, which in many cases led to death. That is why it is so important to protect older people during a pandemic, said Whitty.

In addition, it’s “absolutely clear” that people with concomitant diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, are at risk, he continued.

“About 90 percent of coronavirus deaths had at least one more disease,” the doctor said.

Thirdly, he emphasized that men are much more likely than women to become infected with COVID-19 “for reasons that are not entirely understood.” Thus, gender also becomes a risk factor during the coronavirus epidemic.

A coronavirus pandemic has spread to almost every country in the world. According to the World Health Organization, more than 2 million cases of COVID-19 have been recorded, more than 139 thousand patients have died.

IN UK the total number of infected reached 108 692 people, 14 576 patients died.
