Washington: Scientists have concluded infecting respiratory tract cells developed in the laboratory of laboratory coronoviruses, which describe the number of virus particles produced per cell inside the lungs.
Researchers, including Camille Ehre of the University of North Carolina (UNC) Children’s Research Institute, captured these images to illustrate how graphic and easily understood images of SARS-CoV-2 infection of the airways can be.
The high-power microscopic images generated show a large number of virus particles on human respiratory surfaces, ready to spread infection to tissues, and others.
In the research, scientists inoculated the novel coronovirus SARS-COV-2 into human bronchial epithelial cells of the lung, which they examined 96 hours later using high-power scanning electron microscopy.
The images, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, were re-colored, and depicted infected hairy cells with strands of mucus attached to the cilia tips.
Scientists reported that cilia are hair-like structures on the surface of airway epithelial cells that transport mucus and viruses trapped by the lungs.
Using a high power magnification, they showed the structure and density of SARS-CoV-2 produced by the human airway epithelium.
These virus particles, the researchers said, are the complete, infectious form of the virus released on the respiratory surfaces by infected host cells.
He said that imaging research helps to show the incredibly high numbers produced and released per cell inside the human respiratory system.
According to scientists, the large viral burden is a source of infection spread to many organs of an infected person, and likely mediates a high frequency of Kovid-19 transmission to others.
He stated that the images make a strong case for the use of masks by infected and uninfected individuals to limit SARS-COV-2 transmission.
