Diabetes biggest comorbid factor in COVID-19 deaths: Task force

first_imgNational COVID-19 task force chief Doni Monardo says diabetes mellitus has been the most common comorbidity in COVID-19 deaths in Indonesia.“Based on data in the past six months, some regions have comorbidity levels of up to 92 percent, with diabetes as the number one factor,” he said during a public discussion on Wednesday, as quoted by kompas.com.He added that the province with the highest number of COVID-19 patients with diabetes was East Java. Meanwhile, the second-most common comorbid disease for COVID-19 patients was hypertension, followed by heart disease, lung and respiratory disorder, kidney disorder, asthma and cancer.“COVID-19 is very lethal to the high-risk group [elderly and patients with pre-existing conditions],” he said.Therefore, Doni said, the government’s first strategy was prioritizing the protection of these vulnerable groups. The second strategy is to reduce the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases as well as deaths and increase the recovery rate, while the third strategy is to increase testing and optimize contact tracing.”We have tested more than 30,000 specimens a day. However, this is still below the World Health Organization’s standard of 38,000 people a day,” he said. (aly)Topics :last_img read more
