COVID-19 case with URI symptoms

A 34-year-old female with a history of obesity, presenting with rapid encephalopathy and dyspnea over 36 hours - has URI symptoms for a week and had negative COVID testing as an outpatient 3 days prior. Urgently intubated, treated as ARDS with the higher PEEPs which we’ve come to associate with COVID lungs on the vent. Also had a component of cardiogenic pulmonary edema - newly found depressed EF to 36%, suspected COVID myocarditis. Positive testing on tracheal aspirate. What do you see on the x-ray?
