On September 3, 2020, Dr. Camille Ehre, Assistant Professor at the Marsico Lung Institute at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, published some beautiful and fascinating scanning electron microscope images of the SARS-CoV-2 virus infecting human bronchial epithelial cells. Colored images can be found on Dr. Ehre's faculty page. The work was published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. It's amazing that this seemingly innocuous little particle (in red in the images) could be responsible for so much sickness and death. Thanks for such great work!
