Covid 19

C orona, Corona, Corona
In astronomy you are corona of Sun and moon
In microbiology you are group of seven viruses.
Out of seven viruses thriving on human body
A new virus sprang up being hosted by animals sheltered in human body in the year 2019 in Wuhan.Lo,some called you novel corona virus.
While who christened you COVID 19
You are a tiny particle unseen by human eyes
You are capable of independent metabolism and reproduction in living cell.
But out side host cell( human or animal) you remain completely inert.
Being matured you're known as virion.
You are made up of nucleic acid at core with protein coat called capsid. You are a cause for pandemic infecting lots of people and killing lots of people being defeated by your killing jaw.You have horrified and brought to knee almost every nation.Your killing spree is tremendous one beyond imagination unchecked by any medicine.
To remain safe and sound one has to remain single,never mingle,Keep distancing,Be brief in talking remaining far apart.
If infected,get checked up.If found positive, remain quarantined till declared negative.
Till recovered, remain isolated.Forget foe or friend and movement outside bthe door.
Till final end of corona threat,save life,don't be hurt by corona strife.
