  • The P values are consistent with no difference between the case-fatality ratio in our sample and those in London, England, and the United Kingdom. Our data suggest some evidence that the case-fatality ratio is higher in patients on PD (six of ten) than in HD (51/224) and patients (P=0.015 according to Fisher exact test). ICHD, in-center hemodialysis; SARS-CoV-2, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2; PD, peritoneal dialysis; HD, hemodialysis. The case fatality ratio are accompanied by their 95% CI, i.e., calculated using standard errors of the sample proportion.
