Report on the characteristics of deceased COVID-19 positive patients in Italy

This report is based on data updated to 17 March 2020

1. Geographic distribution

This report describes the characteristics of 2003 deceased and positive COVID-19 patients in Italy. The geographical distribution of deaths is as follows:

2. Demographic data

The average age of deceased and positive COVID-19 patients is 79.5 years (median 80.5, range 31-103, InterQuartile Range – IQR 74.3-85.9). There are 601 women (30.0%). Figure 1 shows that the median age of COVID-19 positive deceased patients is more than 15 years higher than that of patients who contracted the infection (median age: deceased patients 80.5 years – patients infected with 63 years) . Figure 2 shows the number of deaths by age group. Women who died after contracting COVID-19 infection are older than men (median ages: women 83.7 – men 79.5).

3. Pre-existing pathologies

Table 1 presents the most common pre-existing chronic pathologies (diagnosed before contracting the infection) in deceased patients. This figure was obtained in 355/2003 deaths (17.7% of the overall sample). The average number of pathologies observed in this population is 2.7 (median 2, Standard Deviation 1.6). Overall, 3 patients (0.8% of the sample) had 0 pathologies, 89 (25.1%) had 1 pathology, 91 had 2 pathologies (25.6%) and 172 (48.5%) had 3 or more pathologies.

[Table 1 pre-existing pathologies listed from the top:]

Ischemic heart disease
Atrial fibrillation
Stroke
Hypertension
Diabetes mellitus
Dementia
COPD
Active cancer in the past 5 years
Chronic liver disease
Chronic renal failure

4. Symptoms

Figure 3 shows the most commonly observed symptoms prior to hospitalization in COVID-19 positive deceased patients. As shown in the figure, dyspnea and fever are the most common symptoms, less common are cough, diarrhea and hemoptysis. 5.2% of people had no symptoms at the time of hospitalization.

5. Complications

Respiratory failure was the most commonly observed complication in this sample (97.2%), acute damage (27.8%), followed by acute myocardial injury (10.8%) and overinfection (10.2%).

6. Therapies

Figure 4 shows the therapies administered in COVID-19 positive deceased patients during hospitalization. Antibiotic therapy was the most widely used (83% of cases), least used antiviral (52%), and rarely steroid therapy (27%). The common use of antibiotic therapy can be explained by the presence of superinfections or is compatible with the beginning of empirical therapy in patients with pneumonia, pending laboratory confirmation of COVID-19. In 25 cases (14.9%) all 3 therapies were used.
