The respiratory failure from Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) presents the major cause of mortality and multi-organ failure represents other causes of mortality in patients with COVID-19. The author previously described a link between endothelial dysfunction and SARS-CoV-2 infection in patients with COVID-19 and cutaneous manifestation and vasculitis of COVID-19 in dermatology, suggesting that COVID-19 may be a systemic endothelial disease or a multi-organ disease especially in the severe stage.
