COVID-19 is an ongoing pandemic and an intermediate analysis of the first 300 cases treated in the Infectious Diseases Clinic from Craiova has been performed. We have found that most of the cases were asymptomatic or mild, but the severity of the symptomatic cases increases with age. The main comorbidities associated mainly with the severe cases were high blood pressure, obesity, other cardiac conditions, diabetes mellitus and malignancies. Inflammation, coagulation and metabolic disorders are significantly more expressed in critically ill patients. Fatality rate is relatively low, death seems to be associated with old age.
