Abstract
Background: The coronavirus (CoV) specifically known as CoVs disease (COVID)-19 spread from Wuhan city of China to the whole world and created havoc worldwide. It is an RNA virus of family beta- CoVs, and it is third CoV infection after Middle East respiratory syndrome and subacute respiratory syndrome.

Aim and Objective: The objective of this study was to assess the status of COVID-19 patients in the study area.

Materials and Methods: A hospital-based cross-sectional study was conducted in Government Medical College, Azamgarh, on the subjects either suspected or confirmed with COVID 19 tests for March 20, 2020, till the submission of this research. Oral consent was taken from all the patients. The total number of patients included in the study is 81 who were declared as COVID positive patients admitted in the isolation ward after taking throat and nasal swab followed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction technique. Out of 81, 73 (90.12 %) were male and 8 (9.88 %) were female and the age varies from 8 years to 95 years with the mean age of 35.48 years. Out of total patients, 1 was referred due to critical illness, two were shifted to L1 hospital, and 27 were discharged in satisfactory conditions.

Results: The majority of patients (61.00%) were asymptomatic and the patients who were having symptoms presented sore throat and cough (32.00%), fever and cough 19%, sore throat, headache and body-ache (16.00%), cough, sore throat and chest pain (12.00%), and vomiting and pain abdomen (0.06%). Radiological investigations have suggested mild acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in almost (10.00%), and some subjects show changes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. There were 2 patients who showed severe changes of ARDS (<6.00%).

Conclusion: The present study concludes that most of the patients were not much literate, and it was a challenge to make them understand the sensitivity of infection spread. The patients who showed symptoms were lesser; maximum was presented as sore throat, cough, and fever followed by other minor symptoms.
