Clinical symptoms arise from asymptomatic, mild, moderate, severe, and critical symptoms in patients with or without comorbid disease. Chest X-ray examination is one of the modalities in the management of COVID-19 which is cheap and easy to do.Methods: This study was performed by analyzing medical record data of confirmed COVID-19 patients from March to December 2020. This study aimed to examine the relationship between chest X-ray and the degree of disease severity.Results: The results showed that from the examined 542 total samples, the highest number was found in the age group of 40-49 years old (23.6%), women (53%), mild degree of COVID-19 (67.9%), normal chest X-ray (54.6%), predominance on the lower zone of the lung, peripheral and bilateral on abnormal chest X-ray, no comorbid (56.3%), hypertensive in comorbid disease (26.6%). There was a significant relationship between chest X-ray and comorbidity towards COVID-19 severity (p = 0.000).Conclusion:Chest X-ray can determine disease severity, therefore it can be used as the first modality for triage and treatment evaluation in COVID-19 patients.
