The Health Ministry has listed approaches to diagnose suspected co-infection which include, a high index of suspicion for epidemic-prone diseases existing in specific regions during monsoon and post-monsoon seasons. Bacterial co-infections must also be suspected in moderate or severe cases of Covid-19 not responding to treatment.

Similarly, a high index of suspicion of malaria and dengue must be there when a fever case is diagnosed as Covid-19.
