COVID-19 & Risk Factors

I keep hearing about three conditions that supposedly increase one's risk for COVID-19 severity if you catch the virus. Have you heard about these so-called risks and do you know what are they?

 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has produced several compilations detailing underlying conditions that can increase one’s risk. Some agencies have selected three of the most serious risks to publicize: Type 2 diabetes, heart/cardiovascular conditions, and obesity. You can access these lists from the following URLs:
