Useful lab tests in COVID-19 disease

Some interesting study findings on the lab tests linked to COVID-19 disease have been published recently.

An article titled “Laboratory abnormalities in patients with COVID-19 infection” discusses which lab tests have proven useful in supporting the diagnosis of patients infected with COVID-19. Laboratory tests showing increased values of CRP, D-dimer, PCT and others, as well as decreased values of albumin, for example, have been identified in patients with COVID-19 disease.

Another article published in The Lancet, titled “Therapeutic and triage strategies for 2019 novel coronavirus disease in fever clinics”, concludes that elevated CRP is an important factor of COVID-19 disease. You can read the full article at www.thelancet.com
