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).
