Older Adults and COVID 19

The Coronavirus infects people of all ages. However, evidence to date that suggests they are two groups of people are at higher risk of getting severe COVID-19 disease. Elderly people are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection due to their lower immunity and body reserves, as well as multiple associated co-morbidities like diabetes, hypertension, chronic kidney disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Critical illness means that the person with COVID-19 may require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe, or they may even die. Risk for severe illness increases with age. As you get aged, your risk for severe illness from COVID-19 increases. For example, people in their 50s are at more risk for severe illness than people in their 40s. Similarly, people in their 60s or 70s are, in general, at greater risk for severe illness than people in their 50s. The highest risk for severe illness from COVID-19 is among those aged 85 or older.
