Abstract

Background: In this study, epidemiological profiles of COVID-19 patients who have visited the hospital have been evaluated.

Results: The mean age were 61.23±12.36 years with age groups ranging from 17 to 85 years. Men were 69; M:F ratio being 2.26:1. There were 76 symptomatic and 24 asymptomatic patients. Mortality was higher in symptomatic patients.

Conclusion: Patients aged more than 60 years are more prone for severe disease with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pneumonia and this subset of patients requires urgent medical attention.
