It was earlier known as BOOP, when unknown cause, named as cryptogenic organizing pneumonia. Go for throat swab RT PCR for SARS cov 2 in view of finding etiology. Treatment accordingly.

COVID 19 Go for RT PCP and follow protocols of COVID. Under present circumstances and age of pt indicates towards COVID virus Infection called pneumonia. Treat and investige case like COVID untill proves otherwise.
