Acute respiratory distress syndrome COVID-19: Coronavirus Disease 2019 ICU: Intensive care unit IL: Interleukin BACKGROUND In late 2019, several cases of an acute respiratory illness (now known as the new coronavirus or COVID-19) were reported in Wuhan, China. [1] [2] [3] The coronavirus has spread rapidly to all over the world. As of Dec. 1, 2020, a total of over 61.8 million people infected by the virus and caused 1.4 million deaths all over the world. 4 There are various reports on the pathophysiology of the disease. Many studies have suggested that an overreaction of the immune system by virus ©Salehzadeh F, Pourfarzi F, Ataei S.
