It was estimated that around 20 percent of those with underlying health conditions who had COVID-19 in the United States from January 22 to May 30, 2020 died from the disease, compared to just 2 percent of COVID-patients without underlying health conditions. Underlying health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, chronic lung disease, or diabetes greatly increase the chance of death due to COVID-19. This statistic shows the percentage of people in the U.S. who had COVID-19 from January 22 to May 30, 2020 with and without underlying health conditions who died, by age.
