People with Diabetes are NOT at more risk of getting infected with Coronavirus more than others. However, IF infected, diabetics are at a risk of having worse outcome than others. Diabetics are vulnerable once they contract COVID- 19 infection and have a higher chance of serious complications. This is because diabetes is associated with an inadequate innate immune response. Also diabetes is associated with other conditions like hypertension and heart disease which makes patients more prone to complications.
