Abstract

Nosocomial infections are considered a public health issue. They display higher rates of drug – resistant organisms. Immunosuppression is a risk factor to acquire a nosocomial infection. Various publications have tried to demonstrate that COVID-19 disease induces a profound state of suppression in patients, exposing them to nosocomial and opportunistic infections. We present a case of a 57-year-old male patient with a severe case of COVID-19 pneumonia and Elizabethkingia miricola bacteremia.

Keywords: Bacteremia; Immunosupresion; Nosocomial Infection; COVID-19
