The global pandemic situation of COVID-19 has drawn the attention of various health care professionals. Several preclinical or clinical investigations have been explored; however, effective management of COVID-19 has not been found yet. The infection to death ratio related to COVID-19 varies in different countries, yet endangering human survival. Therefore, at present, prevention from SARS-CoV-2 infection appears promising in limiting the spread of the disease. The susceptibility of different individuals varies extensively in a demographic distribution. It has been found that patients with cardiovascular or metabolic disorders, smoking habits, and health care professionals have a higher susceptibility towards SARS-COV-2 infection. Therefore, it becomes mandatory to spread awareness to the people who are at higher risk. After COVID-19 infection, the occurrence of several complications may be lifethreatening.

Thus, this review has summarized the information regarding the susceptibility of people towards COVID-19 disease and disabling/life-threatening conditions after getting infected from COVID-19 disease.
