There is no research available yet to verify if anaemic patients are more susceptible to COVID-19.
World Health Organization, in a report on the novel coronavirus outbreak, had stated that among the people who were dead because of it already had been suffering from cardiovascular disease (13.2%), diabetes (9.2% ), hypertension (8.4%), chronic respiratory disease (8.0%), and cancer ( 7.6% ).
Italy's Higher Institute of Health has analyzed the data of 105 Italian patients who died on 4 March 2020, which reveals that the average age of deceased and positive COVID-2019 patients was 81 years.
A study published on The Lancet reveals that among 191 patients who were diagnosed with COVID-19, 91 (48%) patients had comorbidity, with hypertension being the most common (58 [30%] patients), followed by diabetes (36 [19%] patients) and coronary heart disease (15 [8%] patients). The study states that half of the 191 patients admitted to the hospital had another underlying illness (Refer to Page No.1).
As of yet, there is no research or medical data available to establish a link between the COVID-19 and anaemia to verify that such individuals are more prone to COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
