The COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving global health crisis. While no population appears to be immune to COVID-19 infection, older adults and persons with underlying medical conditions appear to be particularly susceptible to infection and serious adverse outcomes.
Persons with frailty are likely to be among those vulnerable persons, though data is not yet available to study this. Research plans are underway to explore the associations between frailty, vulnerability, and possible connections to the biology underlying COVID-19 infection. We will provide updated information as it becomes available.
