Following publication of the original article [1], the authors identified an error in Fig. 1. The labels for ‘3 or more comorbidities’ and ‘0 or 1 comorbidity’ were incorrectly placed and should be reversed on this Kaplan Meier plot (i.e. people with 3 or more comorbidities experienced poorer survival and people with 0 or 1 comorbidity experienced better survival). The correct figure is given below.
