Coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, originated in the city of Wuhan, China, and has since spread across the globe at an alarming rate.
High Impact – a visual media studio based outside Denver, CO – produced this 3D coronavirus animation to show how COVID-19 is believed to be transmitted, while educating the public on the symptoms that may be caused by COVID-19.
“We’re grateful for the dedication our healthcare professionals have exhibited in the treatment for those that have been stricken with the Coronavirus. We hope our 3D animation in some way contributes to their heroic efforts,” said High Impact CEO Jordan Halperin.
Most people who contract COVID-19 experience mild symptoms, such as sore throat, headache, fever, a dry cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue. However, in a subset of patients, the virus attacks the lungs, causing a more serious infection, such as pneumonia.
Small air sacs in the lungs add oxygen to your blood cell. This oxygen is then transported to organs and tissues throughout the body. When the coronavirus attaches to a cell, it begins to replicate within the cell.
The body’s immune system attempts to destroy the virus, which results in an inflammatory response that causes fluid accumulation in the lungs. As the lungs fill with fluid, the body’s available oxygen decreases, which can lead to organ injury and death.
The risk of serious complications increases if a person is elderly or has associated medical conditions. Once infected, a person may show no symptoms, but can still infect others.
What began in Wuhan has now spread across the globe as international efforts to contain the virus and minimize its spread to the larger population continue.
