COVID-19 coronavirus infection, despite its high contagiousness and rapid spread, is not accompanied by the development of the disease in most infected people. The main cause of clinical manifestations of this infection is inflammation of the lung tissue, which affects the same parts of the organ as bacterial forms of pneumonia, accompanied by identical functional disorders. Functional disorders are caused by inflammatory transformation of tissues, not by the pathogen itself, and are manifested not so much in lung ventilation as in the effect through the pulmonary vessels on the blood circulation of the entire body. Most patients actually cope with the disease on their own, as there are no effective treatment methods yet. However, when the disease has a rapid and progressive course, pathogenetic methods are needed to really help patients, which can help the body adapt and avoid critical situations.
