THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

HOW A BEE STING CAN EXPLAIN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.

If you have ever been stung by a bee or have seen someone stung, you know that the site of the bee sting becomes painful, swollen, and red.  This is a normal inflammatory response of the body (and the immune system) to attack any potential bacteria or toxin that was introduced by the bee into your body. However, some people have deadly allergic responses to the bee. In this particular person, it's not the actual sting that can be the cause of death but rather the response of the immune system (in particular the histamine containing cells called MAST cells which are a type of white blood cell) to release histamine into the blood stream which causes the deadly reactions such as body swelling, suffocation, and eventual death. Similarly, COVID-19 can cause a similar response in the lungs known as a cytokine storm, which like the reaction to the bee sting, is a hyper active response of the immune system resulting in intense inflammation causing swelling to the lung tissues and preventing the ability of the lungs to carry oxygen. This low oxygen is what is ultimately the cause of death in most COVID-19 patients.
