New Delhi Everyone is worried these days due to the corona virus attack. Corona virus which is wreaking havoc all over the world is becoming more deadly than before. Now, people of all age groups are coming in the grip of Kovid-19. However, in the meantime, scientists have found out why the infection of this virus is mainly occurring in adult, older people and how the children are saved from becoming victims of it.
Receptor protein theory
Children have low levels of receptor proteins through which the corona virus affects the cells present in the lungs. Therefore, children are easily saved from becoming victims of this dangerous virus compared to the elders and the elderly.

This is how the corona virus attacks
Scientists’ new research on receptor proteins was published in a science journal. Scientists and researchers in VUMC’s research explained that after a particle containing the corono virus enters the lungs, the protein ‘spikes’ attaches to ACE2, which breaks down the protein cell present on the surface of some lung cells. In this way the corona virus spreads its spread inside that human body and gradually this deadly virus takes over the whole body.
SARS-CoV-2 attaches to cells
Regarding the research, a scientist from the University of Bristol explained how the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) attaches to the cells inside the body, after which the virus is able to attack the cells. After the genetic material release of the virus in the cells, the number of viruses starts increasing. Scientists said that ‘We have always focused our research on understanding the development of lungs. Research has tried to know how he makes adults easily victims after being exposed to Kovid-19.
