Core Tip After systematic literature search, several demographic, clinical, laboratory, and radiologic factors were found to be predictive of severe and critical coronavirus disease 2019 along with the potential need for mechanical ventilation. Factors that were more commonly reported were older age, medical comorbidities, lymphopenia, increased neutrophil ratio, elevated C-reactive protein, and increased D-dimer. Findings on computed tomography (CT) scanning predictive of severe disease were bronchial wall thickening, CT score > 7, linear opacities, consolidation, right upper lobe affection, and crazy paving pattern.
