Hi Professor Hussell, Professor Cruickshank, Professor Grainger, I am Yiping, a PhD student in mathematics. I am interested in the models in immune system and I have several questions about immunity of COVID-19.
1. Is the inflammation(including cytokine storm) the main reason that leads to COVID-19 death?
2. What’s the cause of cytokine storm? Is this because innate immune cells keeps secreting those cytokines?
3. Is lymphopenia associated with cytokine storm?
4. How do our body regulate the pro-inflammation cytokine and anti-inflammation cytokine? If the immune cells secret anti-inflammation cytokine, does it mean it’s going to shut down our immune defences?
Thank you in advance!

Hi, thank you for all the work you have done!
I was wondering if we have enough information to model the within-host immune response against Covid-19 mathematically? And if so, what kind of information do you expect mathematical models to answer?
Thank you very much!
