To our valued customers,
We wanted to share this editorial entitled, “COVID-19: Spirliang of Frailty in Older Italian Patients” written by A.M. Abbatecola and R. Antonelli-Incalzi. In this article it is highlighted that “due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus in Italy, there seems to be a deadly trend toward mortality with COVID-19 in older patients with specific comorbidities, thus identifying a new “COVID Spiraling Frailty Syndrome”.” Available data from the ISS show that the most common commorbidities observed in all Italians dying with COVID-19 are “arterial hypertension (74.7%) and Type 2 Diabetes (30.5%)”. Please read the full article to learn more. We can all get through this together!
