            Abstract

            COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 310,000 individuals as of 17 May 2020. Healthcare providers are profoundly vulnerable to be contaminated instead of taking every single careful step. Although the respiratory tract and the lungs are the target organs some complications may develop even at the introductory phase of this sickness course. Hemoconcentration with raised serum ferritin levels is one of the dangerous conditions that may occur from chronic hypoxia and severe dehydration because of increased insensible loss due to continuous excessive perspirations. Recent posthumous pulmonary tissue studies revealed that the viral infective mechanism, as well as the miniaturized erythrocyte aggregates, are additionally a significant contributing phenomenon to create acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Hematological issues require to deal proactively alongside other vital organ protection protocols for better outcomes. This article will depict the disease sequence of an intensivist working in a corona unit after being infected by COVID-19.
