Abstract

COVID-19 infection is still widespread around the world. It has been demonstrated that albumin is a biomarker in COVID-19 diagnosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between blood albumin and clinical status of COVID-19 patients. In our study, patients >18 years admitted to a hospital in Yazd with a positive PCR test participated. Finally, data was analyzed by SPSS (version 22). 34.2% of men with lower than normal albumin levels needed to be admitted to the ICU. Also, 32.8% of women with lower than normal albumin levels needed to be admitted to the ICU. The results of the present study showed that patients with lower serum albumin needed to be admitted to the ICU more than other patients.
