Health 24: How the coronavirus infects: It can make itself unrecognisable to cells in the body
Like a thief in the night, Covid-19 can disguise itself to easily enter and infect cells in the human body.
A new research study details what cells are more susceptible to the coronavirus.
SARS-CoV-2 can mimic the proteins of a human cell to evade detection by the immune system.
Once inside the cell, it can replicate itself and infect the rest of the host.
Researchers have managed to capture the proteins’ structure, which may help to develop a remedy.
More and more studies are proving how easy it is for the coronavirus to infect human cells – from the lungs to the heart, and even the brain.
