As the COVID-19 pandemic captured worldwide attention,
researchers started noticing a peculiar occurrence with certain patients.
Typically, when the body encounters the virus, the immune system recognizes an
assailant, and it immediately goes into action, resulting in recovery without
hospitalization. However, in some instances, there is a hyper response of the
immune system, referred to as the Cytokine Storm Syndrome (CSS). CSS occurs
when a COVID-19 patient’s immune system kicks into overdrive when fighting the
virus. This article discusses how to recognize CSS within COVID-19 patients.
