Understanding the impact of fibroblasts in severe COVID-19 and potential long-term lung damage
  • Fibroblasts play a crucial role in healing and collagen production in the lungs 6:56

  • Severe COVID-19 leads to a cytokine storm, fluid buildup, and microthrombi in blood vessels 7:27

  • The presentation of severe COVID-19 is expected to change, with less cases of sudden shortness of breath 8:29
