98% of New York Covid-19 Deaths Had at Least One Other Underlying Condition
COVID-19 fatalities continue to be tallied in a way that is not true for any other infection
From NYC health statistics found here updated through April 2:
1145 + 24 = 1169
24 * 100 / 1169 = 2
Of the 1169 deceased with covid-19 for whom it was possible to say if they had another illness (perhaps because their medical records were available), just 2% had none.
For Italy it was 1%: 99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness, Italy Says. 50% Had 3 or More
