92% of World COVID-19 deaths to March 30, 2020 were over 60. More than 75% had underlying diseases present such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and tumor. People with basic diseases, as long as they have pneumonia, were clinically a high risk factor, whether or not coronavirus was present.

‘It is not the case that fatality rate of pneumonia is high because of the infection with the new coronavirus,’ explained the National Health Commission, China.

Should this be interpreted that when both pneumonia and COVID-19 were present at a death, the virus was ascribed. How many COVID-19 deaths might otherwise have been pneumonia?
