Abstract: March 2019 changed the way of world and the way that we live, permanently. The world shut down in a way that we never thought it would. Schools shut down, businesses closed, some even permanently and only “essential workers” were working. However, the one essential place that remained open was hospitals. Hospitals had an influx of people like never before all because of Coronavirus disease or what we call COVID-19. Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and will recover without treatment; However, some will not. They ended up seriously ill and required medical attention and, in some cases, died. This study concludes that demographics such as race, age and sex do in fact play a part in whether it will cause death or just result in ICU.
