A novel coronavirus is a new strain that hasn’t been previously identified in humans.
It is insidious. Typified by spikes on its surface, it fuses and attaches to the cell of human lungs where it recognizes the cell surface receptor gaining access to the lungs.
Within the lung, it attacks the cells in three phases, the viral replication phase, the immune hyper-reactivity phase, and pulmonary destruction.
Not all patients experience all three phases. According to the early data, 82 percent of COVID-19 cases experienced less severe symptoms while the rest were grave to critical.
