At the end of 2020, Los Angeles, California, became a warzone of COVID-19 infections, with up to one dying every 10 minutes at the top of the decade. We conducted a retrospective cohort review of 7,429 confirmed COVID-19 positive patients from two community hospitals in Los Angeles, California, between March 16, 2020 and June 9, 2021. To determine the risk factors most strongly associated with in-hospital mortality, we used the Cox proportional hazards regression tool. Overall, our report showed that age u2265-60 years, low triage oxygenation less than 90%, chronic kidney disease, and obesity were the top patient characteristics linked to increased mortality for both the univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazards model analyses.
