Severe COVID-19 may trigger autoimmune conditions; New variants cause more virus in the airSevere COVID-19 may trick the immune system into producing so-called autoantibodies that have the potential to eventually attack healthy tissue and cause inflammatory diseases, researchers warned in a paper published in Nature Communications.

'Within a week... about 20% of these patients had developed new antibodies to their own tissues that weren't there the day they were admitted,' study leader Dr. Paul Utz of Stanford University said in a news release.
