Explanation about COVID-19

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by SARS corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Many researchers solve the three dimensional structures of corona virus protein and deposit them to PDB database in order to explore the mechanism of infection and develop effective therapies. Look into structures of various corona viruses, to learn the mechanism of infection, the immune system, and the mutant variants.
