    Objective: This study aimed to investigate the clinical characteristics of COVID-19 patients with recurrent SARS-CoV-2 positivity after hospital discharge. Methods: This retrospective study included COVID-19 patients who were readmitted for recurrence MESHD of positive SARS-CoV-2 RNA. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to assess the risk factors associated to the duration of recurrent RNA positivity.Results: Among the 287 discharged COVID-19 patients, 33 (11.5%) patients with recurrent PCR positivity were included. Among these patients, 21 (63.7%) patients were female TRANS, their mean age TRANS was 48.7 (±19.7) years old. 22 (66.7%) patients were asymptomatic TRANS. The following clinical features were presented in other patients: cough MESHD cough HP, fatigue MESHD fatigue HP, sore throat, fever MESHD fever HP and expectoration. The chest CT findings revealed that 8 (24.2%) patients were characterized by deterioration compared to the previous results. The median duration of recurrent RNA positivity was 9.0 days (IQR, 6.0, 15.0). We found that increased serum SERO SARS-CoV-2-specific IgG antibody SERO titer, elevated serum creatinine HP serum SERO creatinine level, and female TRANS gender TRANS were the risk factors for the prolonged duration of recurrent RNA positivity.Conclusion: SARS-CoV-2 turned positive in a minority of discharged patients with COVID-19. Most patients experienced mild clinical course. Increased IgG antibody SERO titer, creatinine and female TRANS gender TRANS were correlated to the prolonged RNA clearance time.

    There is a global concern of increasing number of children TRANS presenting with inflammatory syndrome MESHD with clinical features simulating Kawasaki disease MESHD, during ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We report a very similar case of 5-year-old boy from a COVID-19 hotspot area in Kerala state of India who presented in late April 2020 with acute febrile illness with abdominal pain MESHD abdominal pain HP and loose stools followed by shock MESHD shock HP. On examination, child TRANS had bulbar conjunctivitis MESHD conjunctivitis HP and extremity edema MESHD edema HP. Initial investigations showed high inflammatory parameters, elevated serum creatinine HP serum SERO creatinine and liver enzymes. Echocardiography showed moderate LV dysfunction and normal coronaries. Cardiac enzymes were also elevated, suggesting myocarditis MESHD myocarditis HP. He was treated with inotropic support, respiratory support with High Flow Nasal Cannula, IV Immunoglobulins, aspirin, steroids and diuretics. RT PCR for SARS-CoV-2 was negative twice. His clinical condition improved rapidly, was afebrile from day 2, inflammatory parameters decreased, left ventricular function improved and was discharged after 6 days of hospital stay.

    Background: Information on kidney impairment in patients with coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) is limited. This study aims to assess the prevalence SERO and impact of abnormal urine analysis and kidney dysfunction in hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Wuhan. Method: We conducted a consecutive cohort study of COVID-19 patients admitted in a tertiary teaching hospital with 3 branches following a major outbreak in Wuhan in 2020. Hematuria MESHD Hematuria HP, proteinuria MESHD proteinuria HP, serum SERO creatinine concentration and other clinical parameters were extracted from the electronic hospitalization databases and laboratory databases. Incidence rate for acute kidney injury MESHD acute kidney injury HP (AKI) was examined during the study period. Association between kidney impairment and in-hospital death MESHD was analyzed. Results: We included 710 consecutive COVID19 patients, 89 (12.3%) of whom died in hospital. The median age TRANS of the patients was 63 years (inter quartile range, 51-71), including 374 men and 336 women. On admission, 44% of patients have proteinuria MESHD proteinuria HP hematuria MESHD hematuria HP and 26.9% have hematuria MESHD hematuria HP, and the prevalence SERO of elevated serum creatinine HP serum SERO creatinine and blood SERO urea nitrogen were 15.5% and 14.1% respectively. During the study period, AKI occurred in 3.2% patients. Kaplan-Meier analysis demonstrated that patients with kidney impairment have higher risk for in-hospital death MESHD. Cox proportional hazard regression confirmed that elevated serum creatinine HP serum SERO creatinine, elevated urea nitrogen, AKI, proteinuria MESHD proteinuria HP and hematuria MESHD hematuria HP was an independent risk factor for in-hospital death MESHD after adjusting for age TRANS, sex, disease MESHD severity, leukocyte count and lymphocyte count. Conclusion: The prevalence SERO of kidney impairment ( hematuria MESHD hematuria HP, proteinuria MESHD proteinuria HP and kidney dysfunction) in hospitalized COVID-19 patients was high. After adjustment for confounders, kidney impairment indicators were associated with higher risk of in-hospital death MESHD. Clinicians should increase their awareness of kidney impairment in hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
