(ORDO NEWS) — An international team of specialists found out for which group of inhabitants of the Earth the coronavirus is a mortal danger. So, the virus can kill people who have cancer.
At risk are both people who fight with malignant tumors, and those who defeated them after numerous painful procedures. High mortality was reported by new studies in the United States, Canada, Britain and Spain.
Scientists analyzed the condition of 928 people with cancer who caught the virus. More than half were hospitalized, and 13% soon died. It is obvious that the immune system is not able to fight several diseases at once.
800 English were also analyzed. Their mortality was at an even higher level – 28%. Interestingly, men are in the greatest danger: the mortality rate among them reached 17%, while in women this indicator was 9%. It is worth noting that in women the organism is genetically stronger due to the XX chromosome set (in men – XY). In addition, among women, breast cancer is most common, they are younger and have fewer other diseases.
According to statistics, in the United States alone, there are 1.6 million people with cancer. 20 million were successfully cured. People should take all precautions to prevent coronavirus infection.
