I think it is well reported that reasons Italy has such problems is the fact that they have an older population, high cigarette use, and young people who live with parents and grandparents.  
same with Spain  

when they say that people who have died had “ preexisting medical issues” or “underlying medical conditions “ what exactly does that mean? Hypertension?  Cholesterol issues? Diabetes? Or is it just lung conditions and immune disorders?

I believe the big issues are lung conditions and compromised or weakened immune systems.  Elderly people's immunity levels decline over time, so that is one reason they are at risk, and those with cancer likely have lower immunity levels also.

Supposedly in northern Italy there are thousands of Chinese workers from the Wuhan area that work in Chinese factories making leather goods.  That may be one reason why Italy got hit early.
