The amount of Corona virus that infected the world surprised scientists

Matt Parker, the Australian mathematician, confirmed that the total amount of the virus, which infected more than 53 million people around the world, is only about 8 milliliters, equivalent to roughly the size of a teaspoon, according to Okaz newspaper.

He also commented, saying: "All the chaos in the world now is due to the amount of a virus the size of a teaspoon," adding that "the virus particle is very small, despite its great ability to destroy other cells."


Parker assessed 300,000 new cases daily around the world, by estimating the number of cells in each person infected with the virus, based on medical swabs and research.


Assuming each new case was infected for 14 days, he then counted the number of people currently carrying the virus. In the end, Parker concluded that the total amount of the virus that infected more than 53 million people around the world is about 8 milliliters.


It is noteworthy that the number of deaths from the virus has exceeded one million and 327 thousand cases so far.
