All patients admitted to our hospital for COVID-19 from February 27 to May 20 were included in a general registry. COVID-19 diagnosis was made according to WHO interim guidance [8] by real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction assay for nasal and pharyngeal swab specimens. Exclusion criteria were age under 18 years and refusal to participate in the study. All patients were managed according to the protocol set by Spanish health authorities (Ministerio de Sanidad, Consumo y Bienestar Social) [9]. Treatment of any disease produced by SARS-CoV-2, related complications and criteria for ICU admission followed the same guidelines [9]. ARDS was diagnosed according to the Berlin definition [10].
