“Unique” corona shape?

Read this blog often enough over this summer, you know I love the numbers of Osha in our meadows here in Northern New Mexico. I also get a chuckle when I see articles about the shape of the coronavirus being unique. In nature in general, not so unique. Whether you’re enjoying the scent of Osha on a sunrise walk or – for that matter – fishing from a coastal breakwater and catching a spiny Pufferfish. :-]

    The University of North Carolina School of Medicine laboratory of Camille Ehre, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, produced striking images in respiratory tract cultures of the infectious form of the SARS-CoV-2 virus produced by infected respiratory epithelial cells. The New England Journal of Medicine featured this work in its “Images in Medicine” section. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-09/uonc-urp091020.php [A virion is the infectious particle that is designed for transmitting the nucleic acid genome among hosts or host cells. … Nucleic acid can be DNA or RNA.
