ALL INFORMATION IS DERIVED FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) AND WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION (WHO) WEBSITES WHICH ARE LINKED ON OUR HOME PAGE.
MOST OF THIS INFORMATION IS DERIVED FROM THE CHARACTERISTICS THAT VIRONS POSSESS GIVEN THEIR CATAGORICAL STRUCTURES AND BEHAVIORS INHERENT TO COMMON KNOWLEDGE IN THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY OF VIRONS IN GENERAL.
Corona has brought some scary times to the United States and the world. The sole purpose of a viron, virus particle, is to transplant its internal genetic material into a host cell and reproduce through this process. WE WILL HAVE TO ADAPT TO NOVEL CORONA IN THAT IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY TO MUTATE AND BE IN THE USA IN MULTIPLE FORMS FOR A LONG TIME. MUCH LIKE H1N1 FLU AND THE COMMON COLD.
The virulence factors of a virus are its ability to spread, survive and infect hosts, as well as its deadliness. So how does Corona stack up in these areas? Very well. The virus in question is the Novel Corona Virus 19 for the fact it is new and discovered 2019. Corona as an animal virus has been around and vaccinated for quiet some time, the Novel 19 is the human version.
Virulence FACTORS OF NOVEL CORONA 19:
– ENCAPSULATED IN A PROTEIN SHELL. THIS PROTECTS THE VIRUS FOR LIFE OUTSIDE THE HOST AND IS ACCOMPANIED BY A SUBLAYER PROTEIN ENVELOP. SO IT IS TERMED BOTH AN ENCAPSULATED AND ENVELOPED VIRUS
This serves several purposes for Novel Corona:
1: The proteins in the shell can attach to the host cells receptors and form a bond. With this it can use endocytic vesicles to transfer its genetic material into the host cell for reproduction and takeover of the hosts cells.
2: Like all viruses Novel Corona can alter the proteins on its shell to become a new strain and fool the host immune system or render a vaccine useless to this strain. This is called Antigenic Drift.
3: The hard protein outer capsule and inner envelop give external protection that aids in Novel Corona living outside the body for weeks at a time and to lie in wait for the next unsuspecting host.
– Novel Corona is a single positively charged strand RNA Retro Virus. It can be very good at fooling the host’s immune system especially if it is busy with other challenges such as: a nurse meeting many people a day and many immune challenges, someone with a co morbid issue such as cardiac problems or diabetes, an older or very young person. A person with another sickness is at risk.
A Retro Virus goes against all the laws of nature in that DNA is always present first and uses RNA as a template to reproduce. The Retro Virus is tricky and Corona starts out with one positive strand of RNA. It has multiple proof readers to match this to the host’s DNA: RNA Dependent Polymerase and Exoribonuclease are the main players. Meaning it is very smart and adaptable to the host’s genetic material.
– Long Incubation Period: Novel Corona Virus can infect a host for 1-14 days before any symptoms surface and the host can spread this to other hosts. Very tricky and hard to track.
– Novel Corona can be deadly: Mostly to those with a compromised immune system, it likes to set up in the lungs or kidneys: creating a very deadly viral pneumonia or kidney infection as it reproduces in the cellular cytoplasm. Thus ruining the host’s cells natural functions which is very bad news when regarding the lungs or the kidneys.
As Novel Corona is using all of this cunningness, it has the ability to spread very quickly and exponentially. This means that 1 infected host becomes 2, 2 becomes 4, 4 becomes 8, 8 becomes 16, 16 becomes 32, and 32 becomes 64, 64 becomes 128, 128 becomes 256…………………..The estimated period it is taking Novel Corona Virus to double is 6 days.
– More descriptors of Novel Corona: It spreads through respiratory droplets. A person usually touches the droplets on a surface and touches face, nose, eyes and the viron in the droplet heads to the lungs to do its work. A person may sneeze in the air, on a table, in a car; on someone’s food the options are pretty limitless to spread this viron.
SO THAT IS THE BARE BASICS A LOT MORE GOES ON IN RIBOSOMES/PROTEIN AND CHEMISTRY BUT FOR THE NEED TO KNOW THIS COVERS WHY THIS VIRON IS SO BOTHERSOME. ALSO, WHY NOVEL CORONA WILL BE HERE IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
THE UNITED STATES SOCIETY IS GOING TO HAVE TO ADAPT TO THIS VIRON AND PREVENT THE SPREAD OF IT FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.
BUT THE US DOES NOT NEED TO DO SO ALONE. HOSLISTC HOME AND HOSPICE HAS CREATED A PUBLIC HEALTH NOT FOR PROFIT HOLISTIC TRANSITIONAL VILLAGE (HTV): WHICH IS IN THE BUSINESS TO PROMOTE PUBLIC HEALTH AND CONDUCT DISEASE PREVENTION. HTV IS HEADED BY A MACRO/SYSTEMS SOCIAL WORKER AND MEDICAL BIOSTATISTICIAN. CHARLES HUYCK, M-BIOST, MSW-HA. MR. HUYCK IS TRAINED IN EPIDEMIOLOGY AND IS AN HONORABLY DISCHARGED US PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICER.
HTV IS HERE TO HELP AMERICA TO OVERCOME THE STRANGLEHOLD THAT CORONA HAS ON IT. HTV WILL USE A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO DO SO. ALL OF AMERICA’S SOCIAL STRUCTURES WILL NEED TO BE SOCIALLY ENGINEERED TO COMBAT THIS NEW ENEMY AND HERE IS WHAT HTV PLANS TO DO TO HELP:
1: Home testing for Corona by health professionals to ensure optimal results and follow-up.
2: HTV will consult, contract and develop health and safety plans/policy for large organizations to: prevent the spread of Corona. These organizations will consist of: Shopping Centers, Factories, Schools, Municipalities, Jails, Prisons, Military, Colleges, City Government, and Health Care Facilities.
3: HTV plans to separate the terminally ill homeless from the main homeless population on the streets and provide medical case management in a terminally ill homeless shelter. This will reduce much risk of spread of disease.
4: HTV will conduct prevention services on other contributing factors such as prevention for homelessness, addictions, Hepatitis, HIV.
5: HTV will educate on Universal Precautions and distribute such materials to the public.
6: HTV will promote Sterilization Services and or education on this to combat surface contamination.
