Abstract

We observed bacterial or fungal co-infections in COVID-19 patients admitted between March 1 - April 18, 2020 (152/4267, 3.6%). Mortality was 57%; 74% were intubated; 51% with bacteremia had central venous catheters. Time to culture positivity was 6-7 days; 79% received preceding antibiotics. Metallo-beta-lactamase-producing E. cloacae co-infections occurred in 5 patients.
