The outbreak of COVID-19 has created a global health crisis that has had a deep impact on the way we perceive our world and our everyday lives. How can we cope with the tricky coronavirus now rampant worldwide? As the pandemic tightens its grip on the world, there are important unanswered questions about this novel virus: Why does this infection spread so rapidly from people with no symptoms? Why do some people become critical while others don’t? Will a definitive treatment be found? The underlying key to these questions lies in our immune system. Immune cells are microscopic warriors, combating viruses and other pathogens.
Through the high-tech ‘eyes’ of next-generation microscopes and computer-generated imagery, we will see how our immune defence corps combat against microbes and what mechanism is expected to help develop a treatment.
