The 3d render of coronavirus model was created with consultations of certified geneticist. 3D structural models and function annotation for proteins encoded by the genome of 2019-nCoV, which is the novel coronavirus causing the COVID-19 pneumonia. (Gray color) Virus membrane (Red and purple color) Surface glycoprotein Spike protein: attaches the virion to the cell membrane by interacting with host receptor, initiating the infection. (Blue color) Packages the positive strand viral genome RNA into a helical ribonucleocapsid (RNP) and plays a fundamental role during virion assembly through its interactions with the viral genome and membrane protein (Green color). Plays an important role in enhancing the efficiency of subgenomic viral RNA transcription as well as viral replication. (White color) RNA (Green color) Component of the viral envelope that plays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly via its interactions with other viral proteins. (Flower shape) Plays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly. Acts as a viroporin and self-assembles in host membranes forming pentameric protein-lipid pores that allow ion transport.

“Remember COVID-19 can spread from people that look and feel well. Don’t let your guard down around friends or relatives just because they look healthy – they may not know they are infected but can unintentionally spread COVID-19,” it advised.
