Abstract

Following the global outburst of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic causing COVID-19, a hyperimmune response to the infection was soon established, known as the cytokine storm, which may bear a major impact on the effect of the disease. To this day, we still do not have clearcut diagnostic criteria for the cytokine storm in COVID-19, which poses a problem when deciding on the best medication for the condition, as well as for the optimal time to administer the therapy
