Officially announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2020, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is terrifying with the unimaginable rate of spreading and the large number of deaths. Morethan 171 million COVID-19 cases including more than 3,6 million deaths have been confirmed worldwide since the start of the pandemic. The high incidence of venous thromboembolic events and non-ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome) associated death of patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, despite prophylactic antithrombotic therapy, may indicate the need for a more intensified personalized regime of preventive measures.
