However, for safety reasons all people with diabetes across the UK have been encouraged to follow the advice they are given by the government concerning the coronavirus.

Records from the 1st of March to the 11th of May revealed that one in every three deaths in England was linked to diabetes. This has proven that though the risk is still low for most diabetics more attention should be given to them.

Bridget Turner from Diabetes UK said: “This new data sheds much-needed light on which groups of people with diabetes are more likely to experience poor outcomes if they catch coronavirus.

“It’s very important to remember that the risk of dying from coronavirus – for people with and without diabetes – remains very low, and that as cases of coronavirus decline, the risk to every one of catching the disease will reduce in turn.

“The most important thing anyone with diabetes can do is try their best to manage their condition carefully, keeping their blood sugar in range as much as possible. All people with diabetes should also follow stringent social distancing measures to reduce their chances of catching the virus altogether.”

It has been suggested the threat of people under the age of 40 with type 1 (insulin-dependent) or type 2 diabetes is very low.

The assessment made by NHS research also revealed that most people with diabetes who died or were infected by the virus, had other risk factors. Among the listed risk factors there were diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity.
