How SARS-CoV-2 infection occurs

Since COVID-19 emerged as a major public health emergency, researchers have been working hard to understand the biology of SARS-CoV-2—the causative pathogen—and how it infects human cells. This knowledge is critical not just to understanding the epidemiology of the disease but also to identifying potential drug targets and designing vaccines. This video briefly describes the mechanism underlying the infection of human cells with SARS-CoV-2 and the main biomolecules implicated in the process so far.
