First who gets admitted to ICUs, page 4, Table 1 Characteristics of patients admitted to critical care with confirmed COVID-19 (left column = covid patients, right column = patients with viral pneumonia for comparison):
* Very severe comorbidities are defined as: Cardiovascular: symptoms at rest; Respiratory: shortness of breath with light activity or home ventilation; Renal: RRT for end-stage renal disease; Liver: biopsy-proven cirrhosis, portal hypertension or hepatic encephalopathy; Metastatic disease: distant metastases; Haematological malignancy: acute or chronic leukaemia, multiple myeloma or lymphoma; Immunocompromise: chemotherapy, radiotherapy or daily high dose steroid treatment in previous 6 months, HIV/AIDS or congenital immune deficiency
