Pneumonia covid
Hello Doctors, My brother is in south africa had a covid on 22nd July and after 7 days his oxygen dropped to 85 then he admitted in the hospital and diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs. His treatment stated by the hospital, few days back he is improving his oxygen between 90- 98 on high oxygen support. His CRP down to 2.1, Dimer normal, infection is in control. But yesterday again oxygen dropped to 80 then they put in on ventilator. Can anyone please suggest if infection is in control then why oxygen is not going up. Please please suggest.

He will require higher antibiotics, nebulizations  and continued oxygen support till the lungs recover.
