The Looming Disaster of Underestimating Covid Autoimmunity
The evidence is becoming incontrovertible
Our research has highlighted from early 2020 that severe COVID-19 was a viral mediated autoimmune disease. The last 3 years has been about raising awareness as it has direct implications for therapy and longer term disease risk from infection and vaccination.

Diabetes, Covid and Vaccines – Why is Autoimmunity so Critical?
In total, 641,704 patients with COVID-19 were included. Comparing the incidence rates in the COVID-19 (IR=15.05, 95% CI: 14.69–15.42) and matched control groups (IR=10.55, 95% CI: 10.25–10.86), we found a 42.63% higher likelihood of acquiring autoimmunity for patients who had suffered from COVID-19. This estimate was similar for common autoimmune diseases, such as Hashimoto thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, or Sjögren syndrome.
The autoimmunity hypothesis is supported by a body of evidence linking viral infections to the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases as well as results from recent clinical and basic research demonstrating persisting autoantibodies and serological autoreactivity following SARS-CoV-2 infection in a subset of patients.
