Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), continues to spread rapidly around the world. We reported the first two cases of COVID-19 pneumonia who had the chest computed tomography (CT) performed at the Bamrasnaradura Infectious Disease Institute (BIDI). The chest CT findings in the two patients with COVID-19 pneumonia showed bilateral lung involvement, multifocal involvement, peripheral distribution, ground glass opacity (GGO), consolidation and GGO
with interlobular septal thickening (“crazy-paving” pattern). The chest CT findings in these patients are nonspecific and overlapped with other diseases.
