There’s a number of things that could be happening. Obviously this strain of coronavirus is causing severe pneumonia in many patients. So the first thing you should look at is acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). That alone could lead to the lungs failing, but often you see renal failure (kidneys) as a complication of ARDS. Fluid in the lungs often leads to a pleural effusion as well which can in turn leads to congestive heart failure. Another thing to consider when talking about coronaviruses in general is that the S proteins on the surface of the virus envelope that gives the virus it’s name, are known to bind to zinc-binding metalloproteinases found in cellular plasma membranes in the small intestine, renal epithelium, and central nervous system. So all of those systems could be damaged and potentially fail if the virus is aggressive enough. They are likely observing multiple organ failure. Which one finally does the patient in all depends on which systems are being treated and when the family decides to let them go.
Yep now the fecal-oral evidence is starting to be confirmed in the field... This is pretty textbook but with teeth.

Common cold is casused by lots of different viruses. Corona is one of the main causes.
Most of us have probably had a corona virus before.
@NearlyNapping I think everyone has the corona once in their life
@NearlyNapping Not sure why everyone is freaking out right now
Well, this new strain really is more severe than other strains. But mostly people are freaking out because of the media frenzy. To put it in perspective, something like half million people die from the flu per year.However, from what I'm reading, the CDC, WHO and other health agencies are watching it closely and taking it seriously. But then that's their job and they take any outbreak seriously. just in case.
They wear mask all over in asia so its not uncommon
@adidas0169 true but I think it’s airborne too but I don’t know
I dont know either but anything can happen
