Researchers from the Rocky Mountain Laboratories at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases have since published a number of images of the novel coronavirus up close.
The pictures were captured through transmission electron microscopes and scanning equipment, and depict the crown-like virus particles isolated from a patient in the US. The particles were observed with cells cultured in the lab.
The coronavirus is named after the Latin and Spanish words for “crown,” referring to the virus’ distinct crown-like spikes apparent under microscopic vision.Futurism, images via NIAID-RML (CC BY 2.0)] http://www.designtaxi.com/news/408648/Coronavirus-Photos-Captured-By-Microscopes-Show-The-Deadly-Virus-Up-Close/
