Many patients in the entire world have shown some of the symptoms such as cold, cough, difficulty in breathing and loss of taste as the symptoms for the coronavirus disease. But with time people and gained crowd immunity and now some patients do not even show symptoms and carry the virus without any information to them This might result in them passing on the virus to the less immune person. The asymptomatic person is called the carrier of the disease thus, everyone should take care of not spreading the disease and regularly sanitise oneself.
Studies of the infected patients have revealed that the immune response alters the effects seen od the disease. The doctors and researchers are trying to find out the difference between a protective and the pathological immune response to the virus. In the desired result the immune system should trigger more White Blood Cells to kill the virus but this is not the case as seen by the doctors. The body is triggering the production of cytokinins which are harmful and do not kill the virus.
This stage is called the overdrive of the immune system. The cytokinins damage the inner lining of the lungs, affect the tissues and blood vessels making the situation worse for the patient. To cope up with this, researchers are finding a way out and vaccines are under trails for the eradication of the disease. Until then let us stay safe and sanitise ourselves regularly and fight this virus.
