Cytokine Storm and Covid-19

If you follow the medical news you have probably noticed that there is a lot of talk around something called a Cytokine Storm and how it is possibly the cause of the worst symptoms for Covid-19 patients.

As the country, and the world starts to re-open it is even more imperative for people to protect themselves from getting this horrible virus.  Of course, the best way to do that is to stay at home as much as possible.  If you already have chronic inflammation or a chronic illness, you are already going to be at a higher risk of getting Covid-19.  I tried to pick the easiest to understand sources for you to watch and read to learn about what a Cytokine Storm is.  It is a normal response to a germ, but the storm part is the abnormal part and the part that does all of the damage to the organs of the body.

Please watch, and stay home and safe if you can.  If you would like to ask questions, I will try my best to answer, but a lot of it is very clinical.  I am especially interested, as someone with CKD, to the lab tests that may catch the beginnings of a Cytokine Storm.  I will be keeping them in mind to talk to my doctor about it.
