Table 1 Complete blood picture with a differential blood count of the neutropenic patients included. The minimum value of the minimums, the maximum value of the maximums, and the average value between the averages calculated from the serial blood counts performed for each patient were extrapolated; p values were calculated considering mean values

From: Incidental occurrence of neutropenia in children hospitalised for COVID-19
