Changes in the Indicators of Complete Blood Cell Count in Patients with Coronavirus Infection of Varying Severity

Keywords: coronavirus infection, erythrocytes, platelets, leukocytes, hematological leukocytal indices

Currently, due to a global spread of the new coronavirus infection, studying the methods for its early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of complications does not lose its relevance. The authors of the article studied the peripheral blood parameters of 104 patients with varying severity of coronavirus infection confirmed by PCR. Signs of lung damage were assessed according to computed tomography findings. The most pronounced changes were detected in the differential blood cell count and leukocytal indices, such as the lymphocyte index and the leukocytal shift index. In the white blood of patients with mild coronavirus, lymphocytosis was detected, in those with a severe infection – leukocytosis due to neutrophilia. When studying the leukocytal indices, a decrease in the lymphocyte index and an increase in the white blood cell shift index were found in patients with a severe course of the disease, which may indicate an unfavorable prognosis of the disease.
