    BAckground Severe COVID-19 MESHD patients account for most of the mortality of this disease. Early detection of severe cases of the disease remains a major challenge. Here, we performed clinical and laboratory profiling of COVID-19 MESHD to explore the early warning indicators of severe cases.Methods An analysis of the evolution during the hospitalization of clinical and laboratory findings from 78 confirmed COVID-19 MESHD patients and the associated risk factors.Results Of the 78 patients who were classified as un-severe at admission, 60 patients(stable group) were stable as mild cases until discharge, and the remaining 18 patients progressed to severe cases(exacerbated group) during hospitalization. Compared with stable patients, exacerbated patients exhibited older, higher BMI values and higher proportion of smokers. In the exacerbated patients, the median time from onset to deterioration was 7.5 days. Before the time point(days 0–7 from onset), we observed higher-levels of White blood cells(WBC), neutrophil, Neutrophi-Lymphocyte-Ratio(NLR), Lactose-dehydrogenase(LDH), D-dimer, and lower-levels of albumin in the exacerbated group, compared with the stable group. In the second week after the time point, the exacerbated patients displayed lower numbers of lymphocytes, CD3+, and CD8+T-cells, and higher-levels of C-reactive protein HGNC( CRP HGNC), erythrocyte-sedimentation-rate(ESR), Alanine-aminotransferase HGNC(ALT),Aspartate-aminotransferase( AST HGNC), and Interleukin-6 HGNC. In the third week, the highest temperature and the proportion of febrile patients declined. All of the laboratory indicators gradually improved.Conclusions Advanced age and smoking history could be risk factors for COVID-19 MESHD progression. In the early stage, high-levels of WBC and neutrophils, with noticeably increased LDH and D-dimer, could be early indicators of the disease’s conversion from mild to severe, followed by elevated inflammatory markers, liver enzymes, and decreased T-lymphocytes in the next week.

    OBJECTIVE: Understanding the common laboratory features of COVID-19 MESHD in severe cases versus non-severe patients could be quite useful for clinicians and might help to predict the model of disease progression. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Electronic databases were systematically searched in PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, Web of ‎Science, and Google Scholar from inception to 3rd of March 2020. Heterogeneity across included ‎studies was determined using Cochrane’s Q test and the I2 statistic. We used the fixed or random-effect models to pool ‎the weighted mean differences (WMDs) or standardized mean differences and 95% confidence ‎intervals (CIs).‎RESULTS:‎ Out of a total of 3009 citations, 17 articles (22 studies, 21 from China and one study from Singapour) with 3396 ranging from 12-1099 patients, ‎were included. Our meta-analyses showed a significant decrease in ‎lymphocyte, monocyte, and eosinophil, hemoglobin, platelet, albumin, serum sodium, lymphocyte to C-reactive protein HGNC ratio (LCR), leukocyte to C-reactive protein HGNC ratio (LeCR), leukocyte to IL-6 HGNC ratio (LeIR), and an increase in the ‎neutrophil, alanine ‎aminotransferase HGNC (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase ( AST HGNC), total bilirubin, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine (Cr), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein HGNC ( CRP HGNC), procalcitonin (PCT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), fibrinogen HGNC, prothrombin time (PT), D-dimer, glucose ‎level, and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in the severe group compared with the non-severe group. However, no significant changes were observed in white blood cells (WBC), ‎ creatine kinase (CK), troponin I, myoglobin HGNC, interleukin-6 HGNC ( IL-6 HGNC), and potassium (K) between the two groups.‎CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis provides evidence for the differentiation of severe cases of COVID-19 MESHD based on laboratory test results at the time of hospital admission. Future well-methodologically designed studies from other populations are strongly recommended.
