Also according to the ministry, the lethality rate of the disease compared to the general population is three percent. In other words, of every hundred people with the disease, three die due to the complications stemming from COVID-19.

A number of factors may play a role in whether a patient’s health state may aggravate and lead to death. Elders with high blood pressure, heart and lung disease, cancer, or diabetes are more susceptible, and should redouble prevention efforts.
