Background: On March 11th, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a global pandemic. Healthcare systems in low-and middle-income countries may face serious limitations during a pandemic, for which understanding the predictors of prolonged hospital stay are crucial in decreasing the mortality rate. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictors of increased length of hospitalization among COVID-19 patients. Methods: In this prospective study, we investigated the effect of presenting symptoms and laboratory investigations on the duration of hospitalization of 131 COVID-19 patients at a tertiary hospital in Jordan from March 17th to April 9th, 2020. Results: Patients median age was 24 years [interquartile range (IQR): 8-39], of which 67 (51.15%) were males and 64 (48.85%) were females. Smokers had shorter in-hospital stay (OR: -3.52; 95% CI: -6.73 to -0.32; P=0.03). Taste loss (OR: 5.1; 95% CI: 1.95 to 8.25; P<0.01) and chills or rigors (OR: 4.08; 95% CI: 0.73 to 7.43; P=0.02) were the symptoms significantly associated with increased in-hospital stay, while those who had malaise (OR: -4.98; 95% CI: -8.42 to -1.59; P<0.01) and high white blood cell (WBC) count (OR: -0.74; 95% CI: -1.31 to -0.17; P=0.01) had faster recovery. Conclusions: Our study found that the most common presenting Open Peer Review Reviewer Status
