Scientists around the world are rushing to make a cure for the now rampant coronavirus, but until that cure is created, regulated, and distributed out the public many more people will unfortunately die. But what symptoms are leading to deaths?

Scientists pinpoint which coronavirus COVID-19 symptoms lead to death 01 |

A new study has been published online in the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. The researchers behind the study examined the health records of 85 coronavirus patients who died in Wuhan, China. The scientists examined each of the patient's medical histories, level of exposure to the Coriolanus, coronavirus laboratory results, CT readings, and finally, the treatment each of the patients undertook while in hospital.

The researchers made some discoveries that could allow future healthcare workers to be able to pinpoint which coronavirus cases could result in fatalities, thus saving lives for future and current cases. The study's results indicate that the highest numbers of fatalities occurred in males over 50 years of age that also had other chronic diseases. The most common diseases that were found in males who died from coronavirus were hypertension, diabetes, and coronary heart disease.

The study also found which coronavirus symptoms lead to fatalities, and the most common symptoms found were; fever, shortness of breath, and fatigue. Other complications that were noted in patients who have died were respiratory failure, shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and cardiac arrhythmia.

These new discoveries could allow healthcare professionals to prioritize which patients get immediate treatment, and what kind of treatment is issued out. Hopefully, this newly established knowledge will save many lives in the coming weeks/months to come.
