Abstract

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Respiratory symptoms ranging from mild to moderate appear on most of those infected with the virus and recover without the need for special therapeutic intervention. However, some of those who become infected develop severe symptoms and require medical attention. People who are most likely to develop severe symptoms of the disease are those with underlying diseases, such as cardiovascular disease.The study was conducted in the public laboratories on the outskirts of Baghdad after collecting 100 samples, (60) of people infected with Covid - 19 and (40) of healthy people and the ages of the people ranged from 18-80 years and the ages of the healthy ones from 18-70 years old.The study was conducted to investigate some biochemical indicatorswhich includes creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, glutathione and malonealdehyde, liver functions (AST, ALT and ALP).The results showed a significant increase in creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, AST, ALT, ALP, and a significant increase in Malonaldehyde in all covid-19 patients and a decrease in glutathione in covid-19 patients

Keywords
