This study aims to determine the association between the Covid-19 virus, which affects the world, and chronic diseases. In the analyzes made with the data anonymized by the Mexican government, the co-changes between the chronic disease state and death/intubation status of Covid-19 patients was determined. In the study, one of the association analysis methods, the apriori algorithm was used. In conclusion, it can be said that the patient's death status is associated with the patient's male, diabetes, copd, inmsupr, cardiovascular diseases, and the patient being diagnosed with pneumonia. In addition, it was observed that the intubation state and the patient's diabetes, copd, asthma and renal chronic diseases move together, while in the case of pneumonia, the association between having chronic renal disease and intubated status disappears.
