To assist with planning for COVID-19 we have analysed the following to identify numbers in at-risk cohorts based on extant international data for at-risk groups i.e. frailty, pre frailty; cardiovascular and chronic conditions; comorbidities; possible at- risk CVD and anti-inflammatory medications*; and living/household circumstances (social isolation) including grandparenting; community social care and health service utilisation. We have also produced a report on nursing homes to inform COVID-19 responses for our most vulnerable, and highlight the prevalence of internet access and use in adults over 50, as well as loneliness and social isolation in the over 70s amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
