According to a new study, it has been claimed that disease severity in patients with Covid-19 may not be due to cytokine storm. Inflammatory proteins also known as cytokines play a crucial role in the immune response. If this immune response was too strong, a phenomenon known as cytokine storm can cause harm to the patient. In many cases, different cytokines were evaluated and no comparison has been made with other diseases.
