In this webinar, we review the basic virology of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), including the cellular entry pathways through the ACE2 receptor. We then discuss the use of spironolactone and its possible association to ACE2 expression. We conclude with case studies and explore the use of isotretinoin from a practical perspective in the setting of physically distant management and COVID-19 infection.
