A virus is something between living and non-living. It is an organic submicropic material. It has capabilities to invade a host. It enters the body cells and replicates into many copies of itself.
These copies begin to be shed from the host to external environment. In the external environment the virus remains infectious for certain period of time.
Once it comes in contact with the new host, once again it can repeat its replication process.
In the body of host, the replication process can be halted by antiviral agents and the other primary defence is antibodies. The antibodies produced can destroy the virus.
The problem with the SARS-COV2 is that it’s a novel virus. No one has encountered it in the past. It’s very infectious. It triggers cascade of chemical reactions in the body which leads to various complications.
Mainly, the most vulnerable group for coronavirus deaths are elderly and those who have existing health conditions.
There is no cure nor vaccine for Covid-19. We can protect ourselves against it by following social distancing, wearing a mask, and frequent hand washing.
So having correct knowledge of this disease will help us to protect ourselves against the attack.
We shouldn’t be afraid of it, however at the same time we can’t be complacent as well.
My prayer is for everyone who is suffering from this disease. I pray for comfort to all those who have lost a family member during the pandemic.
God bless you for reading though. In the name of Yeshua Meshiakh. Amen 🙏
