dc.description.abstractDisparities in outcomes exist in outcomes of coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19). Little is known about other ethnic minorities in United States. We included all COVID-19 positive adult patients (≥18 years) hospitalized between March 1, 2020 and February 5th 2021. We compared in hospital mortality, use of intensive care unit services and inflammatory markers between non-Hispanic whites with non-White/Black Hispanic. Multivariable Cox proportional Hazard models were used to adjust for differences between the two groups. There were 4059 hospital admissions with COVID-19 in the study period. Of the 3288 White, 789 (24%) required intensive care unit (ICU) admission in comparison to 187 (24.3%) of the 770 Hispanics. Unadjusted mortality was higher in Whites than Hispanics (17.1% vs. 10.7%; p < 0.001). After adjusting for confounding variables, in-hospital mortality was not statistically different for Whites in comparison to Hispanics (hazard ratio [HR]: 0.96, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.76–1.21, p = 0.73). The adjusted rates of ICU transfers were significantly higher in Hispanics (HR: 1.34, 95% CI: 1.11–1.61, p = 0.002). Hispanics had significantly higher C-reactive protein, lactate dehydrogenase, and fibrinogen when compared to Whites. Hispanics as compared to Whites with COVID-19 require higher rates of ICU admission but have a similar mortality. Hispanics as compared to Whites with COVID-19 require higher rates of ICU admission but have a similar mortality.en_US
