The lungs are ground zero in serious infections by the novel coronavirus. But scientists and physicians are realizing that in the minority of people who become gravely ill, the disease9s reach can extend to many organs including the heart and blood vessels, kidneys, gut, and brain. The virus9 damage may be due to direct invasion of some organs. But a catastrophic, overzealous immune response to infection known as a cytokine storm is likely responsible for some patients9 rapid downhill slide… 

The red half‐moon nail sign: a novel manifestation of coronavirus infection

The novel Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the causative agent of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The pandemic condition was declared by the WHO on March 11,
