New study confirms similarities between after-effects of COVID-19 and sepsis

Results of a new study into the after-effects of COVID-19 from the University of Michigan confirm the similarities between the recovery process of sepsis survivors and those who survive severe COVID-19.

Dr Ron Daniels comments: “This new study confirms what we have strongly suspected since the start of the pandemic. COVID-19 is characterised in the seriously ill by an immune overreaction to the infection causing organ damage, exactly the same mechanism as in sepsis from other causes. We have stated for many months that the after-effects of COVID-19 are likely to be extremely similar to those of other patients who’ve survived sepsis, To the extent that we opened up our support team to survivors of COVID-19 back in March. This new study validates that stance, and supports our proposal that our skills in helping people recovering from sepsis are transferable.”
