  • Among patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19 complications, 39.7% also had diabetes as an underlying medical condition. The percentage increased to 46.5% for patients 50 to 64.11
  • People younger than 18 with COVID-19 were up to 2.5 times more likely to be newly diagnosed with diabetes in the months after infection than those without COVID-19 and those who had other respiratory infections before the pandemic.34
