 Materials and methods:  30 males COVID-19 patients and 30 healthy males aged between 40-70 years, Chest radiograph LDL, HDL, TC, CRP, LDH, D-Dimer, IgM, IgG, IgA, cardiac Troponine-T, CBC, WBC, Fibrinogen, ESR.

The expect results will used as guide by physicians in the diagnostic phase before conducting RT-PCR in suspected patients and also in the monitoring of the patient after confirming the diagnosis by RT-PCR.
