IDD adults are vulnerable  and have an elevated rate of underlying conditions critical to be considered during the pandemic.
Adults with IDD experience higher rates of living with others, lower socioeconomic status,  and poor medical care access. 
The U.S. tends to erroneously list IDD an underlying cause of death.  In 2017, 56.9% of U.S. IDD adults who had pneumonia as an underlying or contributing cause of death had IDD recorded as their underlying cause of death.
Provider organizations and their care staff - generally from impoverished populations - serving IDD adults have been chronically underfunded. ,
