Abstract

Objectives: Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-2019) cases should be classified as severe and mild cases in COVID-19 for additional care requirements to decrease the mortality rate of the covid-19 infected patients. The study aims to investigate whether blood pressure, temperature, and gender are linked with the severity of COVID-19. Methods: This study incorporated n=495 COVID-19 patients, whereas 195 cases were excluded from the study due to insufficient data. In total, 300 cases were analyzed, of which 205 patients are from the mild category and 95 from the severe category. Results: We observed that initial systolic blood pressure was significantly high, although diastolic blood pressure significantly decreases in severity cases compared to mild COVID-19 cases. Furthermore, we observed that in severe COVID-19 instances, initial body temperature was substantially higher than in moderate cases. We also observed that male cases are more prone to have severity as compared to female cases. Conclusion: This research will aid in the early detection of the severity of COVID-19 cases and non-severity, which is critical in the current situation. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2021; 11(3):147-151.
