Abstract

Community-acquired coinfection in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is not well defined. Current literature describes coinfection in 0-40% of COVID-19 patients. In this retrospective report, coinfection was identified in 3.7% of patients and 41% of patients admitted to intensive care (P < .005). Despite infrequent coinfection, antibiotics were used in 69% of patients. © The Author(s) 2020. Published by Oxford University Press for the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
