Definitely suspect SARS COV-2 in view of current pandemic first. Get a swab done as well as get inflammatory markers along with routine blood investigations. Isolate the patient n start management as per ICMR guidelines. If RT PCR turns negative twice, also get PNEUMOPANEL to rule out other common causes of Atypical Pneumonitis like Mycoplasma, Legionella, Influenza, etc. Regards sir.

HRCT part of CT THORAX showing halo sign ( area of consolidation surrounded by ground glass opacity) . In this covid pandemic need to rule it out ( but possibility is less likely) . Need to rule infection likely bacterial first . Sir , pls take history of hemoptysis because if it is present then we can easily explain this halo sign. Need to start broad spectrum antibiotics , repeat xray after 14 days .

Lt basal pneumonia do sarscov2 RT PCR ferritin il6 admit if positive trace carrier
