The COVID-19 pandemic is a worldwide
pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome
coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed
to have spread to Bangladesh in March 2020. The first
three known cases were reported on 8 March 2020.
COVID-19 is a systemic infection with a significant
impact on the hematopoietic system and hemostasis. In
this study, we retrospectively analyzed 92 adult patients,
confirmed as case of COVID- 19 infection by RT- PCR
from April, 2020 to June, 2020. We divided the patients
into two groups; ICU and Non – ICU groups. We
analyzed haematological indices including haemoglobin,
total white cell count, absolute neutrophil count ,
absolute lymphocyte count, platelet count, D-Dimer,
ferritin, LDH in patients of both groups during
admission. Our study showed that on admission,
neutrophilic leukocytosis, lymphopenia,
hyperferritinemia and very high D-DIMER were
usually associated with ICU admission.
