Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly 150 countries leaving over 2.2 million people have been infected. While healthy people might not be at a high risk of certain complications due to the virus, however those who suffer from ailments are more vulnerable to it. As per the CDC, those who have chronic medical conditions such as diabetes are a high risk of developing further complications on contracting COVID-19.
