to analyse the risk factors associated with morbidity and mortality in patients with covid-19 at the Hospital Dr. Benigno Sánchez.


a retrospective descriptive was conducted, the source of information was collected from medical records of hospitalised patients over 18 years of age with a diagnosis of covid-19, with a sample of 26 patients hospitalised in the COVID-19 area in January and February.


It is evident from the table that the mean age of the patients who evolved favorably is +/-62 years, anc that the most affected sex requiring hospitalisation is male, which made up a total of 20 of the 25 patients in the sample taken from the Benigno Sanchez hospital.


the male sex and the elderly are the most affected population, besides being the ones who present more covid-19 symptoms with a tendency to develop complications, requiring hospitalization for a better management of the disease evolution.

Keywords : COVID-19; risk factors; indicators of morbidity and mortality; survival.
