Microbiologists around the world are working hard on determining the shape of novel coronavirus and how to tackle it.

As influenza virus, Ebola virus and several others have been known to spread from human to human quickly, coronavirus seems to be spreading faster than others.

Peter Piot, Belgian Microbiologist known for his work on identifying Ebola Virus stated that from humans to humans, seven varieties of viruses transmit and four out of them are harmless.

But rest of the three are Sars, Mors and the last one was to be identified for a long time.

COVID-19 seems to be the one everyone was waiting to find as it seems to be the scariest one and damaging one as well.

Novel coronavirus is identified to be the tiniest virus ever identified to cause such massive destruction.

It is a small protein developed in the shape of small noodle with a ball in the end.

This is so tiny that one sneeze can carry hundreds of crores of viruses which make it hard to stop from spreading faster.

Hence, even the vaccine development is taking time.

To all the known vaccines to viruses, new additions are being made to counter the virus at large scale.

Hopefully, a cure will be found soon.
