Brief Summary:

This observational study aims to collect detailed clinical information on confirmed or suspected patients of COVID-19 treated in hospitals from Meta State, Colombia. The objectives are:

  1. To establish the characteristics of patients and healthcare workers treated with COVID-19.
  2. To assess previous predisposing morbidity.
  3. To detail clinical factors associated with complications.
  4. To profile clinical indicators for severity and outcomes.

Condition or disease
COVID SARS-CoV 2 SARS Pneumonia SARS (Disease) SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome)

Detailed Description:

Hospital database and clinical charts in an electronic format of patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 will be reviewed to include in the study. Multiple centers from the eastern Colombian prairies caring for this population will participate to provide an understanding of the behavior of the epidemic and accurate clinical comprehension of the disease. Healthcare centers involved in providing an evaluation of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 will be invited to participate.

The study will focus on the routine or new treatment strategies provided and a large population of patients analyzed would be desirable. It will allow identifying the most relevant factors associated with clinical outcomes, complications, and prognosis, with an appropriate statistical methodology for the analysis of observational nature.

Variables of individuals assisted will be recorded as well as the end results, such as baseline characteristics of individuals and disease, and main outcomes such as mortality, need for ICU attention, mechanical ventilation, and length of stay.

These results will be used to promote an improvement in the quality of care and individual and cluster decisions in the region.
