Hi Pravin,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Malaria, Viral or Bacterial infection, the type of problem is to be first sorted out.
With a pin point diagnosis your clinician would select the appropriate chemotherapy because all the three infections are different, the fourth Fungal is also possible.
If he does respond early and the alertness does return then he may need ventilator Support and ICU care.
Going in comma is also a possibility.
Wish you a great health!
