Correction to: Nature Published online 19 April 2021

In the version of this Article originally published, an oversight led to author Emily J. Tsai (Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, USA) not appearing in the author list or Author contributions section. This individual had a significant role in coordinating and facilitating performance of rapid autopsies, the research importance of which is noted throughout the text. The Author contributions section has been amended to include the text “E.J.T. facilitated rapid autopsy specimen collection.” The original Article has been corrected online.
