Prominent bronchovascular marking. Bil rounded soft fluffy infiltrations seen. Rt hemidiaphragm is markedly raised, possibly underlying collapse. Left lower zonal heziness seen. Adv CECT thorax and swab test to rule out covid 19 pneumonia. Contact history, along with Metabolic syndrome are risk factors flavoring the diagnosis of this.

Sir recovered from covid on the 14th day completely, discharged after 4 days of admission, they gave me xone, lasix, pan. Happy to inform you, you guided me well
