Scientists said that the coronavirus affects the lungs three times stronger torso

The new coronavirus is more than three times more aggressive, hitting lung tissue, compared to the strain that causes SARS (SARS, severe acute respiratory syndrome).
To such conclusion the group of scientists from the University of Hong Kong.
In addition, a new coronavirus, unlike strain of atypical pneumonia, behaving more discreetly in the body.

A team of microbiologists led by Professor Yuen Kwok-yuna examined the activity of the virus in lung tissue samples taken from six patients volunteers.
It turned out that the coronavirus within 48 hours replicated in the lung cells 3.2 times more than the SARS virus.
This new coronavirus caused a slower immune and inflammatory responses. So, unlike strain of atypical pneumonia, two days of the "invasion" he practically provoked the action of signaling proteins used by the immune system.

"The coronavirus acts like a ninja, multiply in the body in conditions of low levels of interferons and inflammatory responses," said one of the participants of the study Dr Jasper Chan from medical school at the University of Hong Kong.

Professor Yuen Kwok-young, in turn, expressed the view that "virtually no chance that a pandemic will be able to hold back until July."
