Older adults and people who have  chronic medical conditions like heart disease and hypertension, lung and kidney disease, obesity, and diabetes seem to be at higher risk for more serious Covid-19 illness.  Also people taking immune suppressants for auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus are at risk.
