Figure 3: (a and b) A 45-year-old male patient had a history of contact with a COVID-19-positive family member who presented to the COVID clinic with a history of cough and fever of 3 days' duration. The patient had sudden clinical deterioration and breathlessness; a computed tomography thorax was advised. The findings on computed tomography thorax axial and coronal images (a and b) revealed multifocal patchy areas of round to ill-defined consolidation predominantly in the posterior and basal segments of the lung with surrounding ground-glass opacities. Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction tested positive for COVID-19
