    Published April in Lancet, researchers in Switzerland analyzed the bodies of three deceased Covid-19 patients. Endotheliitis — inflamed blood vessels — were present in the lungs, heart, small intestines, kidney, and liver. As the authors wrote:

    “Although the virus uses ACE2 receptor expressed by pneumocytes in the epithelial alveolar lining to infect the host, thereby causing lung injury, the ACE2 receptor is also widely expressed on endothelial cells, which traverse multiple organs.”

    Later on May 21st, the New England Journal of Medicine published an autopsy report on seven Covid-19 victims. Alongside extensive alveoli damage, the lungs also had “distinctive vascular features,” they noted, “consisting of severe endothelial injury associated with the presence of intracellular virus and disrupted cell membranes.” <mark>Clotting of alveolar capillaries were also 9x more common in Covid-19 cases than influenza pneumonia controls.</mark>

    The following day, another autopsy study from Brazil was published. They showed that all 10 Covid-19 cases had ruptured alveoli. But eight (80%) had it with coagulated alveoli arteries (or pulmonary endothelium). Blood vessels and tissues of the heart, liver, kidneys, spleen, lymph nodes, skin, skeletal muscle, testes, and brain were also damaged. As per the study conclusion:

    “Our findings show that COVID-19 is a systemic disease with major events in the lungs and the involvement of various organs and tissues
