A study talks about the relationship of the weight of the Corona virus to transmitting infection to others

Each infected individual carries about 10 billion to 100 billion particles

If all the particles of the Corona virus known scientifically as “SARS-CoV-2”, which are circulating among humans around the world, were collected in one place; Its weight is close to the weight of an apple and a small child; According to what was reported by “Science Alert” about a new study.

A group of researchers found that each infected individual carried about 10 billion to 100 billion SARS-CoV-2 particles at the peak of infection; Which indicates that all the particles of the Corona virus that infect people around the world, which were about one million to 10 million infections; It has a mass mass of 0.1 to 10 kilograms.

According to Google data; The Corona virus has infected more than 173 million people worldwide, and caused more than 3.7 million deaths.

Here, Ron Mello, a professor in the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science, who is involved in the study, said: “We are talking here about a very small mass of viruses, and they are wreaking havoc on the world.”

To calculate how much virus each infected person can carry; The researchers relied on measuring the amount of “SARS-CoV-2” virus in various human tissues known to be more susceptible than others to the virus, including the lungs, tonsils, lymph nodes, and the gastrointestinal tract.

Analyzing these numbers allowed the team to better understand what happens in the body during infection, such as the number of infected cells and how the number of virus particles in the body compares to how quickly the virus develops, according to Mello.

And “Mello” stated that people who have few particles of the virus, are “less the risk of transmitting infection to others”; Pointing out that it is not yet clear the reasons that lead to this difference in the percentage of virus spread within tissues.
