Background: Coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) caused by a severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 belonging to the Coronaviridae family has caused a global pandemic. As it has emerged as a newer disease, there is a lack of information in many aspects of it. Materials and Methods: We tried to study the progression in the COVID-19 patients in terms of their clinical, laboratory, and X-rays as a radiological modality, for that, we did a single-centered retrospective observational study in 159 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 positive patients with sample size being duration dependent. Results: We found statistically significant correlation between clinical parameters and lung involvement based on chest X-ray (CXR) scoring and also temporal variation as the disease progression occurs. Conclusion: Along with clinical and laboratory parameters, CXRs can be used as a useful bedside, inexpensive, and easily available radiological tool for assessment in resource-poor settings where high-resolution computed tomography scans are not feasible.
