Covid-19 has impacted everybody’s daily life. We all have to keep safe from contamination or contaminating others since, at this point, we still do not know why some are having a very light and nearly symptom-free infection whereas others develop severe Covid-19 with respiratory failure and even death.

A team of researchers from several sections at DIKU and the Copenhagen University Hospitals have pushed all other work aside for a period to help the hospitals to predict which and how many patients will be severely affected and need intensive care including ventilation.

We will present our data from the electronic health records, our methodology and some preliminary results.
