The emergence of SARS-CoV-2 is currently engaging and consuming most of resources of efficient healthcare systems in Europe, and several hospitals are currently experiencing a shortage of ICU beds for critically-ill patients with SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia.
A risk stratification based on clinical, radiological and laboratory parameters seems necessary in order to better identify those patients who may need ICU admission and/or those who may benefit from a prompt antiviral therapy
