A quarter of people who died with coronavirus in hospitals in England had diabetes, officials say.
This finding follows the recent discovery by an American team that, among people infected with the coronavirus, death rates are four times higher in those with diabetes and hyperglycemia. Looking at data taken from 1,122 patients admitted to hospital with the virus, the American team found that 42 percent of them had diabetes or hyperglycemia. These findings are not just coincidence.
As Dr. Rath described in his recent Open Letter, there is a reason why the vast majority of people dying from the coronavirus pandemic have preexisting conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain other health problems. The primary cause of these diseases is a chronic deficiency of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other specific micronutrients. Significantly, therefore, more than 25,000 scientific studies have established a clear connection between micronutrients and the health of the immune system. Worldwide, we now know that a deficiency of micronutrients is the major factor contributing to compromised immunity in human beings.
To read how scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have shown that a synergistic combination of micronutrients can support the immune system in fighting infections, read this article on our website.
