Scientists recommend steroid treatment in the treatment of severe patients of Covid19

According to a study, Covid19 has the greatest effect on the immunity of serious patients and steroid drugs such as Dexamethasone should be preserved for the treatment of such patients.

Scientists say that many types of steroids are effective in treating patients with the coronavirus and that the risk of dying can be reduced to a great extent. Scientists and other scientists at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in the US assessed levels of immune system protein cytokines and other health parameters in 168 adults with Covid19, 26 adults with the flu, and 16 healthy volunteers.

He said that more than 90 percent of Covid19 patients were hospitalized while more than half of the flu patients were admitted for treatment and 35 percent were in ICU. 'According to research published in the journal Science Advance, less than five percent of Covid19 patients, including some critically ill individuals, had a' hyperinflammatory immune response known as cytokine storm syndrome '.

When our immunity starts to damage our body instead of becoming overly active and fighting diseases, it is called a 'cytokine storm'. Although dexamethasone and other steroids are recommended for cytokine storm treatment, these drugs may reverse the effect in patients whose immunity is already weakened.
