I review this site and may have missed the definition of chronic condition. Are the data you report using the CDC conditions? Thank you for your steady reports.
Chronic kidney disease
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies
Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant
Obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 kg/m2 or higher but < 40 kg/m2)
Severe Obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2)
Sickle cell disease
Type 2 diabetes mellitus
Here is what the documents with the Daily Status Report say about chronic conditions:
“Comorbidity Status”: Indicates whether a confirmed case has or had any comorbid or simultaneously existing diseases or underlying conditions that would make the individual more susceptible to severe outcomes. The data reflects reports to DPH during the initial report or during a case interview. Comorbidities include:
a. Chronic Lung Disease
b. Diabetes Mellitus
c. Cardiovascular Disease
d. Chronic Renal Disease
e. Chronic Liver Disease
f. Immunocompromised Condition
g. Neurologic/Neurodevelopmental Condition
