Answer

Leukopenia, leukocytosis, and lymphopenia were common among early cases. [30, 53]

Lactate dehydrogenase and ferritin levels are commonly elevated. [53]

Wu et al reported that, among 200 patients with COVID-19 who were hospitalized, older age, neutrophilia, and elevated lactate dehydrogenase and D-dimer levels increased the risks of ARDS and death. [118]
