The Human Body & the COVID Virus
Let’s get to know the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. Find out what, exactly, a virus is and how this particular virus enters our bodies. What happens in the body once the virus begins reproducing? We will look at the overall structure of the body and study the function of a single cell, especially the cell nucleus. You will better understand how the virus reproduces once it is in the body and how the immune system responds to this invasion. The various systems of the body respond to the virus in complex ways; we will investigate why. Talk will turn to immunizations and how they work, and we will also discuss the use of antivirals and newer classes of drugs being introduced. What do we think will be the outcome of this pandemic?
