The coronavirus that has been increasing in the US and around the world is the same one that caused SARS. The virus is still causing illnesses and some people are extremely sick. The best way to stop the faq-coronavirus blog spread of the virus is to get vaccination. You can also stop the spread of infection by adopting safe habits. This includes having a good indoor air flow, social distancing and wearing a mask when you go to public spaces.

A single SARS CoV-2 virus particle (called a virion) is about 80 nanometers in diameter. It is coated with protein protecting a ball of RNA, which contains the genetic code that makes viruses. A spike protein on a virus’ surface is bound to a receptor in healthy cells. It’s usually a protein named ACE2. This allows the virus to enter the cell. Once inside the host cell, the virus can hijack the machinery for making proteins of the host to produce hundreds or thousands of copies. The virions then leave the cell to infect other cells, and then create more virions.

Infected people can experience symptoms like fever, a sore throat, a swollen or stuffy nose, and a cough. Some sufferers have more serious symptoms like pneumonia and heart and lung issues. Most people recover without long-term consequences.
