Dr. Teresa Montero confirmed the validity of research on multiple organ damage and the significance of immediate treatment after diagnosis.

According to Ms. Montero, necropsies confirmed that the lung with permeability edema is the most hit and deadly organ, yet other organs such as kidney, liver, heart and blood vessels, blood, brain and ileum are also damaged.
