ALMOST EVERY ORGAN HAD BLOOD CLOTS DURING AUTOPSIES ON COVID19 PATIENTS

Dr. Amy Rapkiewicz, the chairman of the department of pathology at NYU Langone Medical Center, "The clotting was not only in the large vessels but also in the smaller vessels." "We found them in the heart and the kidneys and the liver and other organs," she said. "Notably in the heart, megakaryocytes produce something called platelets that are intimately involved in blood clotting." 

"This was dramatic, because though we might have expected it in the lungs, we found it in almost every organ that we looked at in our autopsy study," she said. Rapkiewicz's study outlining her findings was published at the end of June in The Lancet journal EClinicalMedicine.
