Systematic Review of COVID-19 Prognostic Scores
Among the analysed scores, most had some source of bias. The results unfortunately indicated heterogeneous quality and predictor selection, with only five scores featuring a low risk of bias. Among those, based on the number and heterogeneity of validation studies, only the 4C Mortality Score can be recommended for clinical application. Some promising scores for severity prognostication lack sufficient validation so far.
