Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Even though the treatment of the original variant was not fully determined, variants of COVID-19 emerged. Whether the clinic of COVID-19 has changed because of variation is controversial. The present study aimed to examine the COVID-19 severity and treatment responsiveness of critically ill patients between the original virus and emergent variations with a more comprehensive set of measures.
