The risk of thromboembolic events is increased for coronavirus disease (COVID)-19 inpatients. For severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)-infected outpatients, only few data are available so far.
In our prospective single-center study, 461 SARS-CoV-2-infected outpatients were screened for the presence of deep vein thrombosis.
Two outpatients had suffered a deep vein thrombosis. An association with previously known risk factors, such as preexisting thrombosis in the medical history or cardiovascular risk factors, could not be proven.
General thromboprophylaxis in SARS-CoV-2-infected outpatients is still not recommended.
