Abstract

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and pandemic, caused by severe acute
respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has become a major concern globally. One hundred
Convalescent HCWs patients with COVID-19 works in Diyala, Hospitals center, from October 2020 to
March 2021 were included. We recruited 100 non-infected from healthy people and 100 PCR-confirmed
infected HCWs. In this review, we have summarized and discussed recent immunological studies
focusing on the response of the host immune system, cytokine storms such as IL6 have been discussed
as part of immunopathology mechanisms in SARS-CoV-2 infection. This may help us understand
patients’ immune status with COVID-19, particularly those with severe clinical presentation, and form
a basis for further immunotherapeutic investigations. This study calculate that there is the relation
between IL6 and Vitamin D3 in convalescent patients, accounting for a range of previously described
clinical predictors and, potentially directing future therapeutic strategies, including about Vitamin D.
