The scientists determined that all those patients had myopia (short-sightedness), so they looked for the same patients in Hubei Province, where the hospital is located. The analysis of the number of people with myopia indicated that the proportion of short-sighted COVID-19 hospital admissions was over 5 times lower than it was expected from the population.
