Visualizing What COVID-19 Does to Your Body
By now, researchers and health experts have gained a better understanding of the range of symptoms caused by COVID-19, which include fever, a dry cough, and of course, the dangerous inflammation of the respiratory system. Most of us know that COVID-19 can be much more severe than a typical flu, but lesser known are the mechanics behind how the virus causes pneumonia in its victims.
Today’s informative illustration, by scientific designer and animator Avesta Rastan, details the effects COVID-19 has on our lungs, from moderate to severe cases.
It's all in Your Head!
Cancer Heroes assists all cancer patients however due to experience we have a specialist division for Head and Neck Cancers. Sadly, COVID-19 plays havoc through entering our bodies through this region. This is what Head and Neck Cancer it is all about and why it's so dangerous during this pandemic......

The primary genetic programming of any virus is to make copies of itself, and COVID-19 is no exception. Once the virus’ RNA has entered a cell, new copies are made and the cell is killed in the process, releasing new viruses to infect neighboring cells in the alveolus.
