Additionally, the study also found that unmarried men and women had a 1.5-2 times increase in risk of dying from COVID-19 as those who were married.

The study also found that if you were born abroad in countries with low or middle income such as the Middle East and North Africa, women have twice as high mortality from COVID-19, and men had three times mortality compared to people who were born in Sweden.
