Pathologists in pursuit of the COVID-19 culprit



The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has resulted in more than 5·7 million confirmed cases and 350 000 deaths globally as of May 28, according to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. Despite the vast number of reports on the epidemiology, immunology, radiology, and management of COVID-19, few publications on the disease's pathology have so far been available, and most have been single-case reports or small case series.
