The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a progressive virus. It is not a bacteria but an infection that can move within a gene, exit one cell, and enter another. These microorganisms are retroviruses that only have single-stranded RNA (ribonucleic acid) genomes that have the power to convert into double-stranded DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) chromosomes. The viral DNA will then migrate to the host cells’ nucleus. Its RNA polymerase will produce new copies, assemble, exit the cell, and enter a new one like the omicron variant.
This process will prolong until no medicine kills it.
COVID-19 is a harmful infectious disease that can kill an individual, particularly when the host has a weak immune system. It was causing 406 million cases and became the origin of the 5.79 million death cases worldwide.
Coronavirus Disease 2019’s sudden emergence in December 2019 surprised the entire world. Authorities and health experts restricted any possible close-contact social activities that could cause the virus’s hastened dispersion. Thus, people are in temporary home quarantine, and there is only at least one individual that can go outside to purchase their family’s daily necessities.
Work operations are also in an abrupt pause. Only a few establishments got the government’s approval for opening, such as grocery stores, drug stores, police stations, and hospitals. There is no time for outdoor leisure but only essentials.
Specialists did their all to successfully create a vaccination that would boost a person’s immune system. With the help of these vaccines, day 2 and 8 tests, and rapid antigen test for travel, the spread of the virus got minimized somehow. This achievement even enabled travelling.
Nonetheless, the sad reality is that a progressive virus can morph into a new one. This fact occurred on November 26, 2021, as a new coronavirus variant came into view, the Omicron Variant. From then on, it already has 12,947 cases in Europe and 10,866 cases in the UK.
