What is COVID-19 teaching us? (Part 1)

The new coronavirus is still spreading all over the world and we are observing various effects on negatively and positively our living. It is good timing to observe carefully and understand what this virus is teaching us.

What is a virus?

Firstly, we should understand who he/she is. I did a small research about it and realized we did not know much about it. Today, I want to learn with you what a virus is.

According to Wikipedia, a virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism.

So viruses are not living entities. They can not reproduce by themselves. They have to infect other life forms and replicate themselves. A virus has a very simple structure. It is just encapsulated DNA or RNA with protein. It looks like the most simple thing on the planet.

We are facing this simple, tiny, not self-sustain agent. We are not dealing with a gigantic monster. This is the first thing we have to understand.
