Background: The first COVID 19 patient was detected on the 8th March 2020in Bangladesh. The laboratory findings of COVID 19 patients of previous studies may be helpful in the treatment arena of COVID 19. We have very limited research-oriented data regarding the laboratory findings of COVID 19 patients.

Aim of the Study: The aim of this study was to assess the laboratory findings of COVID 19 suspected patients.

Methods: This was prospective observational study and it was conducted in the Department of Medicine, Shahabuddin Medical College Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh, during the period from November 2020 to March 2022. In total 126 COVID 19 suspected patients referred from government primary/secondary healthcare institutions were included as the study subjects. The ethical committee of the mentioned hospital was approved this study. All Data were collected, analyzed by using MS Office and SPSS version 23 programs as per need.

Results: In laboratory blood tests of the participants, we observed that, the mean (±SD) white blood cell (WBC), Neutrophil (N), Leukocytes (L) and S. Creatinine of the participants were found as 10.80 ± 8.99 X 109/L, 77.21 ± 47.54 X 109/L, 19.63 ± 11.83 X 109/L and 1.50 ± 2.36 respectively. Besides these, in electrolyte analysis the mean (±SD) Na+, K+ and Cl- of the participants were found as 139.50 ± 4.93, 3.68 ± 0.69 and 105.67 ± 5.86 mmol/L respectively. As per the laboratory findings 41% (n = 52) patients were defined as COVID 19 patients whereas the rest 59% (n = 74) were not positive. On the other hand, in RT-PCR test only 13% patients were detected as COVID 19 cases whereas the rest 87% were COVID 19 negative. Noted that, all the RT-PCR positive cases were previously detected Covid 19 positive by laboratory tests.

Conclusion: In this study, laboratory findings of suspected COVID 19 patients ensured the pre-detection of COVID 19 positive cases. Although RT-PCR test is considered as the gold standard for detecting COVID 19 patients, laboratory findings can play an important role in primary screening of COVID 19 suspected as well as positive cases.
