COVID-19: Bacterial co-infection is a major risk factor for death, ICU admission and mechanical ventilation

This study found that patients hospitalized for COVID-19 who had bacterial co-infection within 48 hours of admission had an increased likelihood of admission to ICU, mechanical ventilation and mortality, compared with COVID-19 infection alone. This is important because this highlights the need for early detection and clinical intervention of in-hospital COVID-19 patients to improve outcomes and reduce mortality of patients.
