The above-mentioned article has been corrected according to the amendments outlined below; the amendments have been discussed in the accompanying correspondence articles published in this issue of the European Respiratory Journal [1, 2].

In the Abstract, the description that originally read: “Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that age ≥65 years (OR 3.765, 95% CI 1.146–17.394; p=0.023), pre-existing concurrent cardiovascular or cerebrovascular diseases (OR 2.464, 95% CI 0.755–8.044; p=0.007), CD3+CD8+ T-cells ≤75 cells·μL−1 (OR 3.982, 95% CI 1.132–14.006; p<0.001) and cardiac troponin I ≥0.05 ng·mL−1 (OR 4.077, 95% CI 1.166–14.253; p<0.001) were associated with an increase in risk of mortality from COVID-19 pneumonia.” has been corrected to: “Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that age ≥65 years (OR 3.765, 95% CI 1.201−11.803; p=0.023), pre-existing concurrent cardiovascular or cerebrovascular diseases (OR 2.464, 95% CI 1.279−4.747; p=0.007), CD3+CD8+ T-cells ≤75 cells·μL−1 (OR 3.982, 95% CI 1.761–9.004; p<0.001) and cardiac troponin I ≥0.05 ng·mL−1 (OR 4.077, 95% CI 1.778–9.349; p<0.001) were associated with an increase in risk of mortality from COVID-19 pneumonia.”

The table has also been amended and re-formatted for clarity. The new version is reproduced below.

TABLE 4

Multivariate logistic regression analysis of mortality risk factors for patients with severe acute respiratory infection

In the Methods section, the sentence that originally read: “The information for all patients, including demographic data, clinical characteristics, laboratory parameters and outcomes, were collected prospectively.” Has been corrected to: “The information for all patients, including demographic data, clinical characteristics, laboratory parameters and outcomes, were collected prospectively upon hospital admission.”

In the Discussion section, the sentences that originally read: “As of midnight on 24 March 2020, the numbers of Chinese confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia cases and deaths were 81 218 and 3281, respectively, indicating that the overall death rate from COVID-19 pneumonia was 4% [17].” and “As mentioned, the overall death rate from COVID-19 pneumonia was 4% [17], and most deceased patients were older people with underlying illness [8–10].” Have been corrected to: “As of midnight on 24 March 2020, the numbers of Chinese confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia cases and deaths were 81 218 and 3281, respectively, indicating that the confirmed case fatality rate from COVID-19 pneumonia was 4% [17].” and “As mentioned, the confirmed case fatality rate from COVID-19 pneumonia was 4% [17], and most deceased patients were older people with underlying illness [8–10].”
