Brief Summary:
Study rationale and aim: Resolving the COVID-19 pandemic quickly hinges on a crucial factor: how well a person's immune system remembers SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind the disease, after an infection has resolved and the patient is back in good health. This phenomenon, called immune memory, helps our bodies avoid reinfection by a bug persons have had before and influences the potency of life-saving treatments and vaccines. Also, the new coronavirus causes cardiac and pulmonary inflammation. So, our study planned to measure the cardiopulmonary and immunological changes in treated COVID-19 patients. Specific objectives: Measurement the duration of existence of COVID-19 IgM and IgG antibody in patient's plasma, detection of cardiac changes, pulmonary radiological and functional changes after COVID-19 infection. This could help detection of functional impairment in COVID-19 survivors which may have economic and social impact. Also, investigator will assess possible protective immune response following infection which may affect vaccination schedule. Methods: One hundred RT- PCR positive COVID-19 patients will be enrolled. HRCT chest, lateral flow immunoassay, spirometry, DLCO and Echo will be done on after 3, 6 and 12 months of discharge.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. measurement of pulmonary function changes either obstructive or restrictive also lung diffusion and if there is remaining interstitial fibrosis [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    pulmonary function include lung volumes in millimetre and lung capacities

  2. measurement for cardiac function and ejection fraction changes and if there is changes in pulmonary artery pressure [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Ejection fraction ,myocardial contractility,pulmonary artery pressure

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. assessment of IGM and IGG level and if there is immunological changes [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    IGG,IGM level using rapid covid antibody titre
