As said above, CMV could be a cause of colitis. When I was in a bad period and not getting better on meds I was biopsied for it (negative) and antibody tested for it (negative). Good gastro departments in the UK will test for it if people are not improving on immune suppressant meds. Not going to lie, I worry about picking it up and getting susceptible to another form of colitis.
There have been some scary stories coming out of India. Sadly many there have been forced to self-medicate and have apparently used high dose steroids too long and this may be why there is re-activation of diseases, increased fungal diseases etc. India also has high numbers of people with diabetes, vitamin D deficiency and cardiovascular problems which also contributes to susceptibility to Covid19 and diabetes to very severe side effects from steroids.
