Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is leading to a Public Health Emergency of International
Concern (PHEIC) across the globe. COVID-19 has been found to be associated with the dysfunction
of several vital organs in addition to respiratory failure. Though biochemical findings among COVID-
19 patients have been partially characterized in some case studies, published systematic reviews with
consolidated biochemical findings of COVID-19 are not yet available. The role of biochemical monitoring
in the screening of COVID-19 cases has not been definitely established. Hence, the significance of
laboratory parameters in assessing the severity and prognosis of COVID-19 cases is discussed with a focus
on various hematological, biochemical, and metabolic alterations in patients suffering from COVID-19
infection. We conclude that biochemical monitoring of COVID-19 patients helps in identifying critically
ill patients even earlier, aiming to reduce mortality and improve the recovery rate.
Keywords: COVID19, Biochemical, Haematological, Metabolic alterations, Critical patients.
