The age of inpatient ranged from 20s to 90s in our hospital. In our department, we have received 80 patients, 26 cases for≥65 years old (32.5%) and 17 for ≥70 (21.25%). The age of all fatality patients were ≥65 years old in our hospital, the duration for the COVID-19 RNA negative and pulmonary inflammation absorption was much longer for old patients then young patients. Recent online report also showed similar result (https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6912e2.htm). Therefore, we agree that there is strong relationship between age and outcome.
