Coronaviruses are tiny structures that are invisible to the naked eye. They consist of Spike Protein covering their outer surface
These spikes attach to the negatively charged walls of a host cell that forms a bridge that enables the virus to enter the host cell and thus infects it.
As per research papers,* the technology to contain coronavirus lies in disabling this bridge - the S-Protein of the virus.
It also acts as a complementary solution - along with the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), where necessary - to reduce burdens of indefinite social distancing.
