The study was carried out to assess the variation in complete blood count parameters and differential counts in patients hospitalized with COVID‐19 who survived compared to those who died. A single‐center retrospective study was conducted to include a total of 242 patients with confirmed COVID‐19. Researchers presented the characteristics of the complete blood count parameters in these patients. Researchers applied the Mann‐Whitney U test to compare hematologic parameters of patients who died and those who survived; multivariate logistic regression was applied to look for associations with mortality. It was shown that a lower absolute monocyte count and higher NLR are correlated with higher mortality, among patients with COVID‐19.
