The cause of death of COVID-19

In COVID-19 aggressive inflammatory responses result in damage to the airways. Therefore, disease severity in patients is due to not only the viral infection but also the host response. Severe COVID-19 cases progress to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) characterized by difficulty in breathing and low blood oxygen level. ARDS may lead directly to respiratory failure, which is the cause of death in 70% of fatal COVID-19 case.Besides, the vast release of cytokines by the immune system in response to the viral infection and/or secondary infections can result in a cytokine storm and symptoms of sepsis that are the cause of death in 28% of fatal COVID-19 cases. In these cases, uncontrolled inflammation inflicts multi- organ damage leading to organ failure, especially of the cardiac, hepatic and renal systems.
