As of Wednesday, there are now at least  1,012,683 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and at least 53,034 people have died from coronavirus-related illness in the United States. Worldwide, there are at least 2,585,468 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 178,845 deaths.

According to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control, about 90 percent of people who have died from the illness had pre-existing conditions that could exacerbate COVID-19 symptoms. The study also showed that the hospitalized patients were more likely to be adults over 65.

The diagnosed patients were also 54 percent male and the study finds that black people suffering from the condition were hospitalized at a rate disproportionate to the population.
