Postmortem exams on 10 COVID-19 victims show lung injuries, blood clots: Study

Ten post-mortem examinations performed on patients with confirmed COVID-19 found that all patients had lung injuries and early scarring of the lungs as a result of the virus, as well as injury to their kidneys. Nine patients also had thrombosis - a blood clot, in at least one major organ (heart, lung, or kidney). The team was unable to investigate thrombosis in the tenth patient. The research team behind the study believe that the findings could help guide clinicians on treating complications as a result of COVID-19, such as using blood thinners to prevent blood clots from developing. They also hope that a better understanding of the key complications in severe cases could help clinicians develop new ways to monitor and treat the disease.
