Posted By Suborna Fermi Posted on May 18, 2021

The name of Covid-19 is not unknown to even a single soul on the planet. As a matter of fact, it has already claimed so many lives since the beginning and as a final solution of this disease, some of the most advanced vaccination facilities have also been introduced. However, a vaccine or any other kind of treatment is of no worth if the medical experts fail to assess the severity of any disease including Covid-19. As we all know, wrong treatment is as dangerous as no treatment. Indication of severity is hugely important for further progress in the treatment process.

Ferritin is merely known as an intracellular iron storage. It is known to all that low ferritin levels are known for being the reason for iron deficiency anemia. Elevated forms of this iron storage indicates the presence of any kind of viruses or bacterias in the human body. This is how even a temporary presence of Covid-19 can be detected by measuring the ferritin levels. It has been seen in research that high ferritin levels indicate the severity of Covid-19 as in fifty percent of cases, covid patients with extremely high ferritin levels have died.
