Coronavirus Cytokine Storm

COVID-19 CYTOKINE STORM – What it means and why we need to learn about it.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection is associated with a wide spectrum of disease severity, with up to 20% of patients developing severe disease and progressing to life-threatening acute respiratory distress syndrome. The immune response in coronavirus infections, including SARS-CoV-2, plays a central role in viral elimination. In addition, emerging evidence suggests that immune dysregulation may contribute to the pathophysiology of severe COVID-19, which exhibits overlapping clinical and laboratory features consistent with a “cytokine storm". This a complex clinical presentation which may be responsible for end-organ damage and mortality observed in this disease entity and consists of hyperinflammation combined with the failure of the immune system to counteract infection with antiviral response mechanisms.

Retraining Will Be Crucial in Aviation’s ‘New Normal’ 

As the global airline industry comes back from the pandemic, staffing could become a challenge—particularly if the ramp-up in flight capacity happens quickly. The goal across every airline will be to align rehiring with the pace of the rebound, so as people are rehired, they are also retrained quickly. Reassigning and reskilling, as well as training in new safety and operational protocols, will require adaptive learning to get people up to speed efficiently and effectively.
