Video: 3D chest scans shows how Coronavirus destroys lungs
X-rays and CT scans of patients infected with coronavirus reveal how the lungs are filled with the virus, ie they are filled with sticky mucus that prevents normal breathing because it disables the air space.
Medical professionals around the world, from doctors to research scientists, are finally beginning to understand how coronavirus spreads in the body.
To date, over 380,000 cases have been reported caused by the Covid-19 virus as the virus epidemic spreads worldwide.
Lung scans of patients infected with coronavirus have revealed white spots that radiologists call opaque glass cups because they look like blurred glass.
These white spots indicate inflammation of the lungs because the space that usually needs to be filled with air instead are filled with sticky mucus.
Scans of a 41-year-old patient who had a fever and who coughed show how this mucus fills a large part of her lungs.
