Though the amount of coronavirus in one person might not be high enough to develop serious symptoms of the illness, it reduces the level of oxygen in the patient’s blood, resulting in blood clots.

Usually the clots would appear in legs or arms but gradually they move to the lungs, heart and even brain, leading to fatal strokes or heart attacks. This cause sudden death without any signal.
