In regions endemic to both COVID-19 and dengue, cases of coinfections are possible. Since they have similar clinical presentations, but management might be different, it is crucial to identify these cases of coinfections. We diagnosed seven cases of dengue–COVID-19 coinfections. Fever, myalgia, rash and thrombocytopenia were found to be the common features. All patients recovered well with supportive treatment. We report this series to highlight the possibility of rare coinfections in endemic areas and the importance of a high index of suspicion, early diagnosis and prompt management.
