A 330ML Soft Drink Bottle Can Contain All The World’s SARS-CoV-2 Virus

There are about two trillion particles of the SAR-CoV-2 virus circulating around the world. And they all fit into one 330ml soft drink bottle.

According to the Independent, Dr. Kit Yates, lecturer in the Mathematics Department of the University of Bath (UK), has been asked to calculate the amount of SARS-CoV-2 virus in the world. Dr. Yates said that there were about two trillion particles of the SAR-CoV-2 virus circulating around the world.

To illustrate the computational steps, Dr. Yates explained that he found the average diameter of the SARS-CoV-2 virus particle was about 100 nanometers or one part of 100 billion meters. Then he calculated the volume of the virus particles in spherical form.

The average diameter of the SARS-CoV-2 virus particle was about 100 nanometers or one part of 100 billion meters.

Mr. Yates added that even when taking into account the increased spike proteins between the SARS-CoV-2 virus particles, the spherical particles would create some gaps when being stacked. That was why the total number of viruses remained less than one 330ml can of carbonated drinks.

It is amazing to know that all the troubles and hardships that happened over the past year can fit into one can of drink. It is, undoubtedly, the worst drink in history.

Yates’ calculations emphasize that even though the virus is tiny, it can have a big effect on the world. At least 2.4 million have been killed globally since the beginning of the pandemic, while over 109 million cases have been confirmed. Currently, countries are implementing a vaccination program in the hopes of stopping the spread of the virus.

At least 2.4 million have been killed globally since the beginning of the pandemic, while over 109 million cases have been confirmed.

In the UK alone, as of February 16, there were over 4 million COVID-19 cases and more than 117,000 deaths. The country has deployed the first dose of vaccine to around 12 million people. Many hope that the immunization program will put an end to the country lockdown.
