Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) imaging features overlap with SARS and MERS

Although COVID-19’s imaging features are variable and nonspecific, the findings thus far do show ”significant overlap” with those of severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome. The early evidence suggests that initial chest imaging will show abnormality in at least 85% of patients, with 75% of patients having bilateral lung involvement initially that most often manifests as subpleural and peripheral areas of ground-glass opacity and consolidation.

Warning patterns like this are usually consistent across individuals to help predators learn to avoid them. However, a recent study shows how a population of African monarch butterflies (Danaus chrysippus) breaks this rule and has highly variable warning patterns.
