In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic of a new coronavirus infection caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus. The disease is characterized by high contagiosity and a certain mortality rate. Death is generally associated with risk factors such as the patient’s age, constitutional features, the presence of concomitant pathology, etc. The purpose of this study was to identify the distinctive features of hematological indices in patients with COVID-19 divided into two groups depending on the outcome of pathology (recovery/death). Statistically significant differences were found in individual erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelet indices. The detected features do not contradict the known facts and supplement the information about the pathogenesis of the new coronavirus infection.
