    Background: We depicted the survival rate of the patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We focused on the patients who were detected lately after symptom development. The aim is to determine the socio-demographic risk factors associated with the delaying detection of COVID-19 patients. Methods: We selected 300 COVID-19 patients from May to July 2020 for this cross-sectional study in the Molecular Biology Laboratory of Chittagong Medical College, Chattogram, Bangladesh. We recorded clinical characteristics from over phone interviews and laboratory diagnosis by Real-time Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (rRT-PCR). We applied the Cox proportional hazard model to estimate risk factors affecting the delaying detection of COVID-19 patients. Results: The female mortality rate .. View More»
