    • Abstract:
      The article discusses how SARS-CoV-2 sneaks inside human cells, makes copies of itself and bursts out to infiltrate many more cells, widening infection. It mentions that virus can remain undetected inside the human body for so long partly because its genome produces proteins that delay our immune system from sounding an alarm. It also mentions that COVID-19 virus spike protein latches onto an ACE2 receptor, a protease enzyme slices off the spike's head.
