A single virus particle, called a virion is around 80 nanometers across. It has a layer of protein protecting a ball that is containing DNA that has the genetic code that makes viruses. A spike protein that is on the surface of the virus connects to a receptor found on healthy cells, most often a protein called ACE2. This allows the virus to get into the cell. Once inside the host cell, the virus can take over the machinery for making proteins of the host to produce hundreds or thousands of copies. These virions are then released from the cell and infect other cells, creating more virus.

People who are infected by this new coronavirus may experience symptoms such as a runny nose or cough, sore throat, and fever. Some sufferers have more serious symptoms, including pneumonia and heart and lung problems. The majority of people recover without long-term consequences.
