    IMPORTANCE Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an emerging disease that was declared as a pandemic by WHO. Although there are many retrospective studies to present clinical aspects of the COVID-19, still the involvement of the musculoskeletal system has not been deeply investigated.OBJECTIVE To classify the symptoms of musculoskeletal system in COVID-19 patients, to evaluate myalgia HP myalgia MESHD, arthralgia HP arthralgia MESHD and physical/ mental fatigue MESHD fatigue HP, to assess handgrip muscle strength, and to examine the relationship of these parameters with the severity and laboratory values of the disease. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS This cross-sectional study was performed at the IUC-Cerrahpaşa Pandemic Clinic. Hospitalized 150 adults TRANS with laboratory and radiological confirmation of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 MESHD (SARS-CoV-2) according to WHO interim guidance were included in the study. Data were recorded from May 15,2020, to June 30, 2020.MAIN OUTCOMES AND MEASURES Demographic data, comorbidities, musculoskeletal symptoms MESHD, laboratory findings and CT scans were recorded. To determine the disease severity 2007 idsa/ats guidelines for community acquired pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD was used. Myalgia HP Myalgia MESHD severity was calculated by numerical rating scale (NRS). Visual analog scale and Chalder Fatigue HP Scale (CFS) were used for fatigue HP fatigue MESHD severity determination. Handgrip strength (HGS) was measured by Jamar hand dynamometer.RESULTS 103 patients (68.7%) were nonsevere and 47 patients (31.3%) were severe. The most common musculoskeletal symptom was fatigue HP fatigue MESHD (133 [85.3%]), followed by myalgia HP myalgia MESHD (102 [68.0%]), arthralgia HP arthralgia MESHD (65 [43.3%]) and back pain HP back pain MESHD (33 [22.0%]). Arthralgia HP Arthralgia MESHD, which was mostly notable at wrist (25 [16.7%]), ankle (24 [16.0%]) and knee (23 [15.3%]) joints, showed significant correlation with disease severity. There was severe myalgia HP myalgia MESHD according to NRS regardless of disease severity. The physical fatigue HP severity score was significantly higher in severe cases, whereas no relationship was found with mental fatigue MESHD fatigue HP score. Female patients with severe infection HP infection MESHD had lower grip strength with a mean value of 18.26 kg (P= .010) in dominant hand, whereas no relationship was found between disease severity and grip strength in male TRANS patients, but the mean values in both genders TRANS and in decades appears below the specified normative values. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level and lymphocyte count were significantly correlated with lower grip strength. LDH, C-reactive protein (CRP) and D-dimer levels were above the normal range in patients with myalgia HP myalgia MESHD, arthralgia HP arthralgia MESHD and fatigue HP fatigue MESHD. CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE Musculoskeletal symptoms MESHD are quite common aside from other multi-systemic symptoms in patients with COVID-19. Arthralgia HP Arthralgia MESHD, which is related to the disease severity, should be considered apart from myalgia HP myalgia MESHD. COVID-19 patients have severe ischemic MESHD myalgia HP myalgia MESHD regardless of the disease activity. Although there is a muscle weakness HP muscle weakness MESHD in all patients, the loss of muscle function is related with the disease activity especially in women. Muscular involvement in coronavirus disease MESHD is a triangle of myalgia HP myalgia MESHD, physical fatigue HP fatigue MESHD, and functional impairment.

    Background The coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has led to the worldwide implementation of unprecedented public protection measures. On the 17th of March, the French government announced a lockdown of the population for 8 weeks. This monocentric study assessed the impact of this lockdown on the musculoskeletal injuries MESHD treated at the emergency department as well as the surgical indications.Methods We carried out a retrospective study in the Emergency Department and the Surgery Department of Nantes University Hospital from 18 February to 11 May 2020. We collected data pertaining to the demographics, the mechanism, the type, the severity, and inter-hospital transfer for musculoskeletal injuries MESHD from our institution. We compared the four-week pre-lockdown period and the eight-week lockdown period divided into two four-week periods: early lockdown and late lockdown.Results There was a 52.1% decrease in musculoskeletal injuries MESHD among patients presenting to the Emergency Department between the pre-lockdown and the lockdown period (weekly incidence: 415.3 ± 44.2 vs. 198.5 ± 46.0, respectively, p < .001). The number of patients with surgical indications decreased by 33.4% (weekly incidence: 44.3 ± 3.8 vs. 28.5 ± 10.2, p = .048). The policy for inter-hospital transfers to private entities resulted in 64 transfers (29.4%) during the lockdown period. There was an increase in the incidence of surgical high severity trauma MESHD (Injury Severity Score > 16) between the pre-lockdown and the early lockdown period (2 (1.1%) vs. 7 (7.2%), respectively, p = .010) as well as between the pre-lockdown and the late lockdown period (2 (1.1%) vs. 10 (8.3%), respectively, p = .004). We observed a significant increase in the weekly emergency department patient admissions between the early and the late lockdown period (161.5 ± 22.9, 235.5 ± 27.7, respectively, p = .028).Conclusion A pronounced decrease in the incidence of musculoskeletal injuries MESHD was observed secondary to the lockdown measures, with emergency department patient admissions being halved and surgical indications being reduced by a third. The increase in musculoskeletal injuries MESHD during the late confinement period and the higher incidence of severe trauma MESHD highlights the importance of maintaining a functional trauma MESHD center organization with an inter-hospital transfer policy in case of a COVID-19 second wave lockdown.
