Kaiser Jamil1*, Kavitha Kumari Kakarala1 and Ramesh Maturi2

Abstract
The year 2020 has brought previously unseen challenges upon humankind. A new corona virus, spread at an unprecedented speed globally stormed the entire planet bringing life to almost a standstill with several months of lockdown. What is still sticking in our minds is –when will the pandemic end? or will it ever end? This article is a short review of COVID-19 patients who were already suffering from diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers and COPD and other respiratory diseases. We analyzed all articles which discuss the role of the comorbidities in predisposing people to coronavirus SARS- COV-2 and the associated fatalities. However, there are contradictory reports, and in a scenario where the mechanism of infection and resistance to infection and variation in the severity of infection is observed, the role of comorbidities must be evaluated with more data. This article presents an analysis of the fatalities and the role of comorbidities reported from the onset of SARS-COV-2 to present. Further, healthcare support system for the already suffering people was largely neglected during this period, as hospitals were overcrowded with COVID-19 patients. The aim of the article is also to appraise the neglect of primary health care during the COVID-19 pandemic which has been a concern globally and suggest methods to minimize such neglect in future.
