A Comparative Study of Bacterial Infections Between COVID-19 and Non-COVID-19 Patients With Respect to Different Isolates and Their Antibiotic Sensitivity Pattern

  14 June 2023

Following the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, the emergence of and following the pandemic has required major modifications to healthcare systems and frameworks. Antimicrobials have more than a few potential roles in managing COVID-19. Experimental cures for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 are being explored. The availability of limited data suggests that nosocomial infections are associated with a higher risk of death and severity of COVID-19. To fill this knowledge gap, we conducted a study to assess the spectrum of bacteriological isolates in different samples from COVID-19 patients. Our study aimed to evaluate the antibiotic resistance pattern of these bacterial isolates and compare the spectrum of bacteriological isolates in different samples and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern between COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients.

Secondary infections with resistant pathogens in COVID-19 patients highlight the importance of antimicrobial management programs focused on the optimal selection of empirical treatments based on culture reports.
