Abstract

We estimated the case-fatality rate (CFR) and ratios (RR) in adult COVID-19 cases with hypertension and diabetes mellitus in the New York State. We found that the elderly population had a higher CFR, but the elevated CFR ratios associated with comorbidities are more pronounced for the younger population.
