What is the coronavirus?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a common viral disease that has been classified as a world pandemic virus since February 2020 by the World Health Organisation. The name coronavirus is derived from the fact that the structure of the virus is like a crown, as you can see on the info page. Observing the inner structure, we can see that it is made by RNA and N protein and the outside is protected by spike glycoprotein (S). This pandemic has caused the world economy to crash, and the world population to be put in a strict lockdown. This emphasises its severity, and lethality. Older people are at a higher risk than younger people, due to the fact that the virus attacks the respiratory system. Some countries are significantly affected by the virus and will continue to be affected, such as the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Brazil or Russia, and some countries are not affected by the virus in such a significant extent, such as Vietman, Syria and Taiwan. The country with the lowest coronavirus cases is Saint Pierre and Miquelon with 2 cases, 0 deaths and 2 people recovered.
