There are 1000s of articles about COVID-19! What was your point in sharing just this one?

Although there are 1000s of articles about COVID-19, most of them are very specific. In particular this one is showing findings that would not be shown commonly. Nobody biopsies early stages of pulmonary involvement. These samples were obtained for other reasons. In the end it helps understand the process of disease better. I do not know if you have a medical background, but enjoy this nice article!
