Th is is a common occurrence in some patients where the immune system’s response to COVID-19 is extreme and goes into overdrive to fight the virus. Accumulating evidence shows that many COVID-19 patients die because of the increase in the production of the inflammatory cytokine molecules, rather than the virus itself.“The preliminary results were highly positive.
