no information on the site if the patients had some kind of immunity illness or they took an immunity illness tests during the SARS-COV-2 period

do you know an expert working in an immunity lab i can correspond with ?

Wasn't the auto-immune disease question the reason for folks looking at Hydroxychloroquine ? I believe that is what you should research......people are already looking.

I don't think such figures would be considered useful. It is generally accepted that immune suppression puts someone at increased risk, and the people involved are aware of this and could be expected to be taking extra precautions. It is assumed one of the reasons the elderly are more at risk is because their immune system is less effective. However this is complicated by the idea that a significant cause of death is due to an immune over response, which is currently treated with drugs designed to suppress this response.
I suspect that because of the actions to protect the immune compromised individuals and the delays in treatments that would cause immune suppression, if we treat the elderly as belonging to a different risk category, the numbers would be low and unrepresentative.
We might get some more information when they start reporting on vaccine trials but until then I suspect that any information will be based on theoretical risks.

This paper mentions problems that patients had before COVID-19. A small number of patients had HIV (not sure if that is the sort of immunity problem you were asking about):
https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2761044
no i wonder if there is other immunity related thing that results in the fatality of SARS-COV-2
the fatality of this illness is 3.4 - 14%
could there is some sort of immune illness that make the SARS-COV-2 dangerous, some illness we dont know about ? if you dont test the patient blood will not be seen ?

hope all of you are safe and fine

what if 1st was the immune system was weaken for reasons we dont know then if the SARS-cov-2 hit the person it became lethal , like the SARS-Cov-2 lethality is an outcome of some immune system illness

Well there are lots of individual differences in people which might alter a persons susceptibility to any infection and then a huge set of environmental issues that might alter risk, so unless there is a clear single issue identified, like diabetes it will be impossible to get a clear answer.
So, yes immune competence is extremely important but there is a big list of things that might effect that.
