SarsCoV2 case

This is a case from the beginning of the SarsCoV2 pandemic, now more than three months ago. Unfortunately, I have to say that I don’t have precise follow up (such as labs) as I wasn’t able to follow the patient directly A 67-year-old female, admitted for a wrist fracture that went through uncomplicated orthopaedic surgery. Before the surgery she appeared clinically well, no fever, no SOB, she denied cough and other constitutional symptoms. From 24 to 48 hours after surgery she went in full respiratory distress with a SatO2 as low as 65%. I just wanted to remember how this patient can deteriorate very rapidly.

Present ct chest shows she is a c/o covid19 pneumonitis as GGOs and patches of pneumonitis are seen bilaterally hence ARDS I feel as a mandatory rule xray chest may have taken preoperative. And if was done than it is acute excerbation of asymptomatic covid19 which is again a warning
