All the Coronavirus in the World could fit inside a Coke Can [View all]

Not too long ago I posted/referenced an article about a scientist who captured images of SARS-CoV-2 under an electron microscope. The article stated that the virus is 10,000 times smaller than the circumference of one human hair. (This scientist states that's it's 1,000 times smaller -- but who's measuring?) It seemed incredible to me, even knowing that viruses cannot be seen with the human eye. Now an English mathematician did the work and has concluded that all of the Coronavirus in the world can fit inside of a soda can! Perhaps his work may inspire some folks to wear a mask already.
