Résumé

Asymptomatic infections are not rare and most patients complain with fever and respiratory signs. Clinical signs are polymorphic and aspecific. Chest CT scan is commonly used as a diagnostic and triage tool in patients admitted to hospitalization. The 2 main complications are respiratory distress related to worsening pneumonia with an associated cytokine storm occurring mostly 7 to 10 days after disease onset, and thromboembolic disease. The fatality rate is around 2%. In-hospital management includes oxygen supply when needed and prevention of thromboembolic disease. Associated bacterial infections seem to be rare. Remdesivir might reduce the time to recovery in hospitalized patients needing an oxygen supply. Dexamethasone might reduce the fatality rate in patients requiring mechanical ventilation. The development of many candidate vaccines gives hope to fight the pandemic.
