Your immune system fights against foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria to protect you from various diseases. There are two parts to your immune system: Innate immune system: Your skin, stomach acids, mucous membranes, and other infection barriers.
Apart from that, there are white blood cells such as Neutrophils, Basophils, and Eosinophils that identify and activate mechanisms to kill the bacteria and viruses. It is the frontline of the body's defense mechanism. Adaptive immune system: It produces antibodies and other white blood cells like Lymphocytes that fight against foreign bodies like germs. While the innate immune system is activated at once, the adaptive immune system has a slower response. The antibodies developed by the adaptive immune system are specific to the germ and tags it to be destroyed by the other immune cells.
Everyone has a different level of immune response to Covid-19 infection. That’s why some people develop severe complications, while others have mild symptoms. People who develop severe disease from the infection, have their immune system working continuously to protect you but fail to stop the disease and become hyperactive. This causes disruption to the body's vital functions and ends up in critical damage like blood clots in the lungs or septic shock. Lungs may also fill with fluid and result in multiple organs failure. This clotting and blood thickening can also lead to stroke, paralysis, and heart attack.
