Neither the naked eye nor many microscopes can see it, and so the current threat from COVID-19 and its pathogen remains invisible.

This was reason enough for the international Corona Structural Task Force led by scientist Dr. Andrea Thorn from the Rudolf Virchow Center at the University of Würzburg, Germany, to develop a 3D model of the new corona virus. At 17 cm, this model is so big you can pick it up. The aim of the scientists is not only to make the SARS-CoV-2 virus understandable for non-scientists in a […]
