The woman, who is from Italy, caught coronavirus in April 2020, which cut off the blood supply to her upper extremities.

It is believed the side effect may be related to a common immune reaction to Covid called “cytokine storm”.

 

Cytokine storm prompts the body to attack both sick and healthy tissues in a response to the havoc the virus wrecks on the vascular system.
