Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and COVID-19 related mortality in England

Population cohort study (263,830 & 2,864,670 people with type 1 & 2 diabetes respectively) found crude mortality rates for COVID-19 in people with diabetes of 138.3 and 260.6 per 100,000 persons for type 1 & 2 respectively, with general population rate being 38.8/100,000.

SPS commentary:

Also, people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes had 2.86 and 1.81 times the odds respectively of dying in hospital with COVID-19 compared to those without diabetes, when also adjusted for previous hospital admissions with coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease or heart failure.
