Caractéristiques cliniques et épidémiologiques des patients dépistés pour la COVID-19 au CHU de Saint-Pierre à l’ile de La Réunion du 23 mars au 10 mai 2020

Abstract : Introduction: During the first epidemic wave linked to the new Coronavirus (COVID-19), in Reunion Island, it was important to target patients to be screened in order to slow down the propagation of the virus on the island. The aim of the study was to describe the epidemiological and clinical characteristics of patients screened for Covid 19 during the first confinement. Methods: During the lock down period from March to May 2020, we described patients who came to be screened for Covid 19 in our university hospital center as well as the patients who tested positive. Results: The mean age was 39.4 years. Patients often present with co-morbidities (32.4%) and were mainly symptomatic (75.2%). The positivity rate of having COVID 19 was 6.8%. This rate significantly increased for those returning from a trip the last month and those with prolonged contact with a traveler. The positivity rate was statistically associated with the presence of anosmia and ageusia. Conclusion: Patients testing positive for Covid 19 at the start of the epidemic were rather young, often symptomatic and having returned from travel or having been in contact with symptomatic positive patients.
