Covid-19 infection mechanisms

Scientists are exchanging information around the globe.  I’ve heard anecdotal accounts of how patients  have seemed to be improving, and then suddenly have a turn for the worse.  The link below has a pretty good explanation for this.   The immune  system, according to the article below, designed to defend the body against invaders, can kick into overdrive and act  in a harmful manner (cytokine storm).  Children with a less developed immune system might not have this immune reaction hence they have more mild symptoms.  Thank God!

I think I’ll stop here, as it is better explained in the article below.

Stay tuned and safe,

Dave
