AbstractPeculiarities of glutathione metabolism in COVID-19. The article presents the results of studies on the effect of coronavirus infection on the metabolism of glutathione and sulfur-containing amino acids in patients with COVID-19. The defeat of the pulmonary system by the COVID-19 virus is accompanied by hypoxia, which provokes an increased excretion of cystine in the urine, which can cause tension in the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids and glutathione. The understanding of the mechanisms of influence of the COVID-19 virus on metabolic processes in the body has been expanded
