    Introduction Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD. Indonesia officially established the first COVID-19 confirmation case in early March 2020. East Kalimantan has been determined as a candidate for the new capital of Indonesia since 2019. This makes Abdul Wahab Sjahranie Hospital Samarinda as the largest hospital there has been designated as the main referral hospital for COVID-19 patients in East Kalimantan. We report the epidemiological, clinical, laboratory, and radiological characteristics of these patients. Methods All patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 by RT-PCR were admitted to Abdul Wahab Sjahranie Hospital in Samarinda. We retrospectively collected and analyzed data on patients with standardized data collection from medical records. Results By May 8, 2020, 18 admitted hospital patients had been identified as having laboratory-confirmed COVID-19. Most of the infected MESHD patients were men (16 [88.9%] patients); less than half had underlying diseases (7 [38.9%] patients). Common symptoms at the onset TRANS of illness were cough HP (16 [88.9%] patients), sore throat (8 [44.4%] patients), and fever HP fever MESHD (8 [44.4%] patients). Laboratory findings of some patients on admission showed anemia HP anemia MESHD. Levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were increased in 10 (55.6%) of 18 patients. On admission, abnormalities in chest x-ray images were detected in 6 (33.3%) patients who had pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD. The mean duration from the first hospital admission to discharge was 33.1 days. Discussion The majority of COVID-19 patients are male TRANS. COVID-19 comorbidities were found in several patients. The main clinical symptoms of COVID-19 in this study were cough HP cough MESHD, sore throat, and fever HP fever MESHD. The abnormal laboratory finding in COVID-19 patients is anemia HP anemia MESHD, an increase in AST and ALT levels, and chest x-ray images of pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD. All patients are in mild condition. The average length of hospital admission patients to discharge is more than 30 days. Conclusion Although all patients are in mild condition, the inability of a local laboratory to check for positive confirmation of COVID-19 makes the admission period of the patient in the hospital very long. The availability of RT-PCR tests at Abdul Wahab Sjahranie Hospital Samarinda will greatly assist the further management of COVID-19 patients.

    Background: Since December 2019, the outbreak of COVID-19 has spread quickly and thumped many countries and regions. The epidemic of central China was under the spotlight and attracted much more attentions. However, there are few reports describing COVID-19 patients in the regions outside of Wuhan, which are undergoing the change from sporadic imported cases to community-acquired transmission TRANS.Methods: The electronic medical records of 74 laboratory-confirmed patients of COVID-19 were retrospectively reviewed and analyzed. Their epidemiological, demographic, clinical and radiological characteristics were systematically summarized. The difference between severe patients and non-severe patients were also analyzed statistically.Results: The 74 COVID-19 patients were composed of 4 (5.4%) mild patients, 56 (75.7%) common patients, 13 (17.6%) severe patients and 1 (1.4%) critical patient. 43 were male TRANS, and 31 were female TRANS, with the average age TRANS 48.1±17.5. No significant difference of susceptibility was observed between genders TRANS, and almost people with all age TRANS were susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD. Before Jan 26, only imported sporadic cases were observed. However, from that day onward, family cluster infection MESHD cases increased dramatically, up to 70.3% (52/74), which were mainly from 15 family. The incubation period TRANS spanned from 0 to 19 days, with the median 5, and 81.4% had symptom onset TRANS within 7 days. At admission, 31.1% of patients had underlying diseases MESHD and the most common underlying diseases were hypertension HP hypertension MESHD (13.5%) and diabetes MESHD (5.4%). The most common symptoms were fever HP fever MESHD (90.5%), cough HP (75.7%), fatigue HP fatigue MESHD (36.5%) and chest distress (32.4%). 36.5% and 16.2% of patients had leukopenia HP leukopenia MESHD and lymphocytopenia MESHD. 43.2% of patients had increased C reactive protein (CRP), and 40.5% had higher erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and 21.6% had higher calcitonin. 74.3% of patients had obvious lesions in both lung lobes MESHD and 56.8% of lesions manifested as ground glass opacity. Compared with non-severe group, the severe/critical group were significantly older and had more underlying diseases. After treatment, all patients improved and were discharged. No medical professional infection MESHD and death case were reported.Conclusion: The epidemic of COVID-19 in Nanjing were mainly caused by family cluster infection MESHD. The entire prevalence SERO and illness were much milder than those of Wuhan. The disease of COVID-19 could be controlled and cured.

    Backgrounds Since December 2019, a novel coronavirus epidemic has emerged in Wuhan city, China and then rapidly spread to other areas. As of 20 Feb 2020, a total of 2,055 medical staff confirmed with coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-Cov-2 in China had been reported. We sought to explore the epidemiological, clinical characteristics and prognosis of novel coronavirus-infected MESHD medical staff. Methods In this retrospective study, 64 confirmed cases TRANS of novel coronavirus-infected MESHD medical staff admitted to Union Hospital, Wuhan between 16 Jan, 2020 to 15 Feb, 2020 were included. Two groups concerned were extracted from the subjects based on duration of symptoms: group 1 (<= 10 days) and group 2 (>10 days). Epidemiological and clinical data were analyzed and compared across groups. The Kaplan-Meier plot was used to inspect the change in hospital discharge rate. The Cox regression model was utilized to identify factors associated with hospital discharge. Findings The median age TRANS of medical staff included was 35 years old. 64% were female TRANS and 67% were nurses. None had an exposure to Huanan seafood wholesale market or wildlife. A small proportion of the cohort had contact with specimens (5%) as well as patients in fever HP fever MESHD clinics (8%) and isolation wards (5%). Fever HP Fever MESHD (67%) was the most common symptom, followed by cough HP (47%) and fatigue HP fatigue MESHD (34%). The median time interval between symptoms onset TRANS and admission was 8.5 days. On admission, 80% of medical staff showed abnormal IL-6 levels and 34% had lymphocytopenia MESHD. Chest CT mainly manifested as bilateral (61%), subpleural (80%) and ground-glass (52%) opacities. During the study period, no patients was transferred to intensive care unit or died, and 34 (53%) had been discharged. Higher body mass index (BMI) (HR 0.14; 95% CI 0.03-0.73), fever HP fever MESHD (HR 0.24; 95% CI 0.09-0.60) and higher levels of IL-6 on admission (HR 0.31; 95% CI 0.11-0.87) were unfavorable factors for discharge. Interpretation In this study, medical staff infected with COVID-19 have relatively milder symptoms and favorable clinical course, which may be partly due to their medical expertise, younger age TRANS and less underlying diseases. Smaller BMI, absence of fever symptoms MESHD fever HP symptoms and normal IL-6 levels on admission are favorable for discharge for medical staff. Further studies should be devoted to identifying the exact patterns of SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD among medical staff.
