Abstract

While the world was busy in fighting over toilet papers, scrolling the memes down the social media, binge watching TV all day long and getting beaten up by police for getting outdoors, there were some people in white coats out there who were working for day and night in the laboratories all around the globe. It was first used in print in the year 1968 by an informal group of virologists in the journal Nature to designate a new family of viruses. The name refers to the characteristic appearance of virions (which is the infective form of the virus) by electron microscopy, which have a fringe of large, bulbous surface projections which make the structure of virus resemble the structure of solar corona or halo. This morphology in coronavirus is created by the viral spike peplomers, which are proteins on the surface of the virus. Out of the wide range of coronaviruses the one causing COVID-19 in humans and which also is the biggest challenge for science is caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 or better said SARS-CoV-2. We are unaware of the reason, but the spikes on the surface of coronavirus are just the right shape to lock onto these ACE2 enzymes and bind tightly. Scientists of many fields have jumped in the race to defeat the coronavirus. But what is the use of this in the fight against coronavirus? The whole world is in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic. When a safe and effective vaccine is found, COVAX have decided to facilitate the equitable access and distribution of these vaccines to protect people in all countries.
