His cbc, and crp is attached below He had monocytopenia with normal WBC count, with crp of 101. Kindly comment


66 yrs of age with increased CRP indicating towards infection and inflammation . Under present circumstances you must follow protocols of COVID 19 issued by ICMR from time to time. Needs further investigation and evaluation to conclude particularly RT-PCR HRCT etc. Good nutritious balanced liquid diet.

Thanks Dr A Ahmad

Crp elevated it mean some inflammation is there also monocytes on lower side treat him as covid start steroids and snticogulsnts

Crp more dan 60 indicate cytokine storm..start steroid nd anticoagulant
