Answer: D

The infectious nature of the coronavirus and its effect on various body organs depends on the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2).

The ACE2 is a functional receptor on cell surfaces through which coronavirus enters the host cells. These receptor cells are highly expressed in major body
