In our previous research, we found that both Modified Early Warning Score(MEWS) and Rapid Emergency Medicine Score(REMS) demonstrated acceptable predictive values for the in-hospital mortality of critical ill patients with novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) 1 . If each parameter could be collected in a busy emergency department, REMS might be more accurate than MEWS for critical ill patients with COVID-19, especially for the patients aged<65 years.
