People who suffer from metabolic disorders are at greater risk of dying from coronavirus. This conclusion was reached at the Federal State Budgetary Institution Scientific Research Center for Endocrinology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. The lethal outcome among this group of patients is recorded by doctors four times more often than in the rest. 

According to RIA News citing experts, the risk group includes people with diabetes, multiple organ disorders, adrenal gland diseases and autoimmune diseases. At the same time, according to experts, in Russia, about 40% of residents have thyroid tumors, 19 million people have diabetes, about eight million are obese, another 30 million are at risk for it. 

However, being overweight does not affect the very possibility of coronavirus infection. Doctors advise those at risk to eat properly during self-isolation, observe a rest and sleep regimen, and, as agreed with the doctor, take a course of vitamins.
