Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) is circulating all over the world. To understand and find a way of the COVID-19 treatment, the signaling pathway and therapeutic mechanism of COVID-19 should be investigated. The pathogenesis of COVID-19 includes molecular networks such as the binding of the membrane proteins, signaling pathways, and RNA replication. The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is a new type of coronavirus causing COVID-19, infects the cells via the binding of the membrane proteins of human cells and is internalized by the cells. The viral genome is replicated by RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp), followed by the packaging and releasing of the viral particles. These steps can be the main targets for the therapeutics of COVID-19. The AOP379 "Increased susceptibility to viral entry and coronavirus production leading to thrombosis and disseminated intravascular coagulation" consists of the molecular initiating events (MIE) as "Increased susceptibility to viral entry" (KE1738) and "Increased coronavirus production" (KE1847), key events (KEs) as "Oxidative stress response" (KE1869) and "Coagulation" (KE1845), and adverse outcome (AO) as "Thrombosis and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation" (KE1846).
