: This study reports on hospital admission and outcomes of 69 HIV-infected subjects who were diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection between February and May 2020, in a network of Italian centers. Patients' characteristics and median days between symptoms and diagnosis were similar by hospital admission, whereas admitted patients were had lower nadir CD4 cells and current lymphocytes count. These values were also correlated to worse COVID-19 outcome. Antiretroviral drugs did not seem associated with disease severity.

Abstract

: This study reports on hospital admission and outcomes of 69 HIV-infected subjects who were diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection between February and May 2020, in a network of Italian centers. Patients' characteristics and median days between symptoms and diagnosis were similar by hospital admission, whereas admitted patients were had lower nadir CD4 cells and current lymphocytes count. These values were also correlated to worse COVID-19 outcome. Antiretroviral drugs did not seem associated with disease severity.
