Confluent Shadows are unilateral basal, favours consolidation. Adv bronchoscopic lavage to rule out any obstructive etiology and BAL for evaluation.

Tachycardia with left basal pneumonia no covid incomplete rbbb try salbactum750 mg bd 10 days

Keep in mind covid

Pneumonitis/ pneumonia COVID 19 Infection. Treat as per protocol.
