Abstract: Introduction: Corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a newly emerging infectious disease caused by infection with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronvirus-2 (SARS CoV-2). The third COVID-19 disease wave in India was seen in January to March 2022, due to omicron variant of SARS-COV-2 [1] and clinical profile of patients admitted in this wave in SVBP hospital during January to April 2022 was studied. Material and Methods: The study was conducted in SVBP hospital & LLRM Medical College, Meerut during COVID-19 at the time of 3rd wave from January 2022 to April 2022. All admitted COVID-19 patients in the hospital were studied, thorough history, vaccination, co-morbidities, examination was recorded & all the investigations were done Patients were treated symptomatically and interventions were also done when needed and recorded. Results and Conclusions: Total 151 patients were admitted in SVBP hospital during COVID wave-3. In these 81 i.e. 53.65% were males and 70 i.e. 46.35% were females. In all the admitted patients, 138 patients i.e. 90.39% were successfully discharged and 13 patients i.e. 8.60% expired during hospitalization. Discussion: There are various data on mortality in SARS COV-19 infection in India. It is very difficult to calculate true mortality rate due to under-reporting of cases on major scale in India. The Case fatality rate [2] in first COVID-19 wave was predicted to be 1.4% whereas case fatality rate for second wave was estimated to be 0.8% after adjustment of under reported cases. [2]
