I am sure he meant endothelial. Only not in the sense that Sars-Cov2 is an endothelial virus; but that full-blown covid is an endothelial disease, as some writers like to frame it [1]. James is like that, sadly. Reads a lot, but much (most?) of it superficially.

[1] See e.g. a quote from here: "we believe that two major pathogenetic processes cause severe COVID-19, namely i) the accumulation of activated macrophages in the lung (alveolar macrophage activation syndrome) with the resultant hyper-inflammatory state leading to multi-organ dysfunction, and ii) an endothelialitis with associated immunothrombosis involving the microvasculature of the lung as well as the brain and fatty tissue"
