I have often seen in media about the comorbidities that make things worse for a COVID-19 patient. The most often mentioned are hypertension and diabetes as also mentioned in this article:

From what is known at the moment, patients with COVID-19 disease who have comorbidities, such as hypertension or diabetes mellitus, are more likely to develop a more severe course and progression of the disease.

I am wondering if this is something specific to SARS-COV2 and a few other viral infections or these type of underlying conditions are complicating things for most viral infected patients.
