In the body of COVID-19 patients develop bacteria that lead to superinfection

The chief physician of infectious diseases hospital No. 40 in Moscow, which specializes in the treatment of patients with COVID-19, named the most common causes of death of patients.

In patients infected with coronavirus infection, dangerous bacteria develop rapidly, they lead to so-called superinfection, which can cause death. This was stated by Denis Protsenko, chief physician at the infectious diseases hospital № 40 in Moscow, which specializes in the treatment of patients with COVID-19.

According to him, the bacteria are resistant and multiply rapidly, so doctors have to change their treatment tactics. Within three months different infections have appeared in the intensive care units of the hospital due to the transfer of patients from other hospitals.

Protsenko named the most common causes of death of patients with COVID-19: hypoxia, thromboembolism and sepsis.

The outbreak of coronavirus infection began in late 2019 in China. On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization declared coronavirus a pandemic.
