Abstract
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), marks a global event that will permanently reshape implementation of intensive care medicine. As of June 4, 2020, there are 6,606,455 reported cases of COVID-19 including 388,556 fatalities spanning 215 countries and territories, although epidemiological data remain incomplete. Early autopsy reports emphasize proximal airway and distal airspace involvement, including alveolar epithelial inflammation and capillary thickening.
