From the Document: "The first confirmed case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the US was reported from Washington State on January 31, 2020. Soon after, Washington and California reported outbreaks, and cases in the US have now exceeded total cases reported in both Italy and China. The rate of infections in New York, with its high population density, has exceeded every other state, and, as of April 20, 2020, it has more than 30% of all of the US cases. Limited information has been available to describe the presenting characteristics and outcomes of US patients requiring hospitalization with this illness. [...] This study describes the demographics, baseline comorbidities, presenting clinical tests, and outcomes of the first sequentially hospitalized patients with COVID-19 from an academic health care system in New York."
