Following publication of the original article [1], it is reported the second paragraph of the introduction includes some errors, as is indicated below.


The original first sentence was:


Much earlier in a study in China, where COVID-19 was initially identified, it was found that 48% of patients had a comorbidity, with hypertension being the most prevalent (30%), followed by diabetes (19%) and coronary heart disease (8%) [7].


The correct first sentence should be:


Much earlier in a study in China, where the COVID-19 was first reported, it was found that 48% of patients had a comorbidity, with hypertension being the most prevalent (30%), followed by diabetes (19%) and coronary heart disease (8%) [7].


The original article [1] has been updated.
