Are people with diabetes more likely to get COVID-19?

While diabetics are not more likely to get Coronavirus than the general population the issue lies in the fact that they face worse clinical outcomes.

It is also evident now that the more number and severe the number of comorbidities a patient has – the worse the outcome in terms of need for hospitalisation, complications and death.
