    SARS-CoV-2 causes acute respiratory distress that can progress to multiorgan failure MESHD and death MESHD in some patients. Although severe COVID-19 MESHD disease is linked to exuberant inflammation MESHD, how SARS-CoV-2 triggers inflammation MESHD is not understood. Monocytes are sentinel blood cells that sense invasive infection MESHD to form inflammasomes that activate caspase-1 HGNC and gasdermin D HGNC ( GSDMD HGNC GSDMD MESHD) pores, leading to inflammatory death MESHD (pyroptosis) and processing and release of IL-1 family cytokines, potent inflammatory mediators. Here we show that ~10% of blood monocytes in COVID-19 MESHD patients are dying and infected with SARS-CoV-2. Monocyte infection, which depends on antiviral antibodies, activates NLRP3 HGNC and AIM2 HGNC inflammasomes, caspase-1 HGNC and GSDMD HGNC cleavage and relocalization. Signs of pyroptosis (IL-1 family cytokines, LDH) in the plasma correlate with development of severe disease. Moreover, expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) linked to higher GSDMD HGNC expression increase the risk of severe COVID-19 MESHD disease (odds ratio, 1.3, p<0.005). These findings taken together suggest that antibody-mediated SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD of monocytes triggers inflammation MESHD that contributes to severe COVID-19 MESHD disease pathogenesis.
