The first pictures, which show 'the real appearance' of the novel Coronavirus has released by researchers from the Shenzhen National Clinical Medical Research Center for Infectious Diseases and Southern University of Science and Technology and published online in pre-print journal BioRxiv.

The images were captured in a lab in southern China after experts had used frozen electron microscope analysis technology to inactivate a strain of the virus. The technology preserves the virus to show its state of being when it was alive. It is the most authentic result. The team also captured an important intermediate state in the host cell when it was being infected by the virus.

“The appearance of the virus that we see is exactly the same as what it would be in nature,” said associated professor Liu Chuang, a member of the team. “It can lay an important foundation for the identification, analysis and relevant clinical research. 'This finding will help the development of drugs and vaccines against the coronavirus.”
