Chest CTs and other laboratory parameters of positive RT-PCR COVID-19 group and negative RT-PCR COVID-19 group were compared. Even in patients who had a negative RT-PCR test, the amount of lung injury was substantially linked to altered laboratory test findings (decrease in lymphocytes and a rise in CRP, LDH, d-dimer, and fibrinogen levels). In patients with a double negative RT-PCR result, this could be a useful additional diagnostic tool.

A patient with a history of diabetes mellitus who was recently cured of COVID-19, presented with symptoms of fever and cough. Examination revealed the presence of Aspergillus. The patient was treated for COVID-19 for 4 months. Hemoptysis, dyspnea, cough, fever, and rigor were the symptoms reported by the patient.

The impact of superinfections in COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome was assessed. Superinfections were detected 10 days after ICU admission. Patients with lung superinfections have a higher risk of bacteremia, virus reactivations, and yeast colonisation, as well as a longer stay in intensive care. Despite a high rate of antibiotic therapy, superinfections are common and are related with lower ventilator free days (VFDs) at 28 days.

A Covid-19 infected patient with an inflammatory disorder (polymyalgia rheumatica) was diagnosed with Covid-19 associated invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (CAPA). Aspergillus fumigatus was isolated from the tracheal aspirate of the patient. The patient died after 28 days of admission. COVID-19 is linked to a number of well-known side effects, such as anosmia, venous thromboembolism, and ARDS. Clinicians should be aware of the potential of CAPA, especially in patients admitted to the critical care unit with severe COVID-19.

Endotracheal aspirate(from lungs and lower airways) from Covid-19 infected patients showed the presence of bacterial co-infections. Acinetobacter baummanii and Staphylococcus aureus were the strains detected. All strains of Acinetobacter were resistant towards antibiotics,except colistin, vancomycin or tetracycline. Sample collection of patients were done in 4 stages after an interval of 3 days. Phenotypical detection of metallo-beta-lactamase(MBL) producing isolates was done by combination disc diffusion test(CDDT) and modified Hodge test(MHT).

A patient with co-infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and influenza A virus showed signs of pneumonia. However, the upper respiratory samples were negative in the SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test. Metagenomic next-generation sequencing (mNGS) using bronchoalveolar lavage fluid was used to confirm the presence of SARS-CoV-2. A 69- year old patient had fever and dry cough. CT scan of lungs showed ground-glass opacity in the lower right lung. Multiple nasopharyngeal samples were negative for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR but positive for influenza A. A week later the pateint still complained of persistent fever and shortness of breath. Bronchoalveloar lavage samples were then obtained for metagenomic next generation sequencing. Out of the 3,460 sequences, 99.8% identity and covered 98.69% of the SARS-CoV-2 genome NC_045512.2|SARS-CoV-2|Wuhan-Hu-1 (GenBank accession no. NC_045512.2). Co-infection with other viruses may result in false negative test for COVID-19 in upper respiratory specimens.

SARS-CoV-2 patients admitted to ICU were investigated for bacterial and viral co-infections. A 28% rate of bacterial-co-infection, mostly related to Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Entero- bacteriaceae were reported. Co-infection with other viruses were not detected.
