Medical Virology

Virology is a branch of microbiology dedicated to the study of viruses, which are the submicroscopic intracellular molecular parasites that reproduce only inside the cells of living organisms, as well as the virus-like agents, such as prions and viroids. It explores the structure of virions, types of viruses, classification, evolution, pathogenic properties, cultivation, genetics, methods of infection, interactions with the host organism, the ability to destroy host cells and to reproduce exploiting them, methods of diagnosis and therapy.

Virology is a science of great interest and is actively developing together with such modern sciences as microbiology, gene therapy, vaccinology, due to many human diseases caused by viruses. The number of viruses is increasing day by day, and new previously unknown viruses appear and require researching, finding medicines and vaccines against them.

The virology science is built literally entirely on images, illustrations, drawings, diagrams, sketches, snapshots, and pictures. These are the snapshots at a large magnification of a microscope, diagrams of viruses structure, schematics showing the ways in which viruses enter a living organism, visual representations of the connections between these microorganisms, environment and hosts which they infiltrated, illustrations depicting ways they enter living organisms, the stages that the microorganisms go through in their life cycle, diagrams devoted to the variety of viruses and methods of protection against them, protocols for diagnosis and treatment of virus infection, visuals describing methods of self-tracking, graphics reflecting forecasts and trends in medicine, newest digital technologies in microbiology, virology, and immunology. Being well designed and carefully thought-out medical and virology infographics are a powerful tool of spreading awareness, learning and marketing.

Example 1: COVID-19 Symptoms

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

COVID-19 or Coronavirus disease 2019 is an infectious disease first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. It was caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and resulted the worldwide pandemic. The symptoms of COVID-19 are listed in this visual sample. Among the most common are fever, dry cough, and fatigue. However were also noticed some uncommon symptoms, like headache, nasal congestion, sore throat, coughing up sputum, shortness of breath, pain in muscles or joints, chills, nausea and/or vomiting, diarrhea (diarrhoea). The disease may proceed with different degrees of gravity, in severe disease cases were fixed high fever, coughing up blood, decreased white blood cells, and kidney failure. The use of clipart representing a human's internal structure allows reflecting the correspondence of specific symptoms to the organs where they occur. This diagram clearly explains all the symptoms of CoV and is easy to understand, so it is ideal for informing people, it can be used to immediately identify a disease and make a correct diagnosis.

Example 2: Contact Tracing

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.

This sample diagram is dedicated to tracing the contacts of a person with confirmed disease. The goal of this activity is to stop the spread of a disease by finding people that have recently been in contact with an infected person, testing them for infection, as well as isolating, monitoring them for symptoms during the incubation period, and simultaneously treating the infected ones. If contact symptoms were discovered among the contacts of the infected person, then, in turn, tracking of the contacts of the new patient begins and this cycle is repeated until there are no new patients and no contacts with other people. And correspondingly at this moment, the further spread of disease will stop. Contact tracing is typically used for diseases such as tuberculosis, measles, blood and sexually transmitted infections, serious bacterial infections, and new airborne infections such as H1N1, SARS-CoV, COVID-19.

Example 3: Coronavirus Virion Structure

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This example was designed based on the Wikimedia Commons file "Coronavirus virion structure.svg" and shows the Coronavirus virion structure. Five structural proteins are encoded by Coronaviruses in their genomes. These are the Spike glycoprotein (S), Envelope protein (E), Membrane protein (M), Hemagglutinin Esterase protein (HE), and Nucleocapsid protein (N), which plays an essential role in the structure of CoV. Most of listed proteins are presented in all virions but Hemagglutinin Esterase is contained only in some beta coronaviruses. The interactions between these proteins allow several virus particles to organize together. Coronaviruses are a group of related RNA viruses, they contain a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA viral genome consisting of seven genes, via interactions with which the replication and transcription of CoV are realized. Coronaviruses bind to the receptors on the host cell surface via the spike proteins, the replication occurs in the cell cytoplasm.

Example 4: Ebola Cycle

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.

This sample diagram shows the life cycles of the Ebola viral infection, which causes a viral hemorrhagic fever named Ebola virus disease (EVD). It is based on the illustration from the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Ebola Virus Disease is a rare and deadly zoonotic disease first discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River in the current Democratic Republic of Congo. The risk of death is 25-90%. Ebola virus most commonly affects people and nonhuman primates, such as monkeys, gorillas, chimpanzees. Five species of Ebola virus were researched: Ebola virus (Zaire virus), Sudan virus, Taï Forest virus, Bundibugyo virus, and Reston virus. The last one causes disease only in nonhuman primates and pigs, not in people. The disease symptoms can reveal in a term from two days to three weeks after contracting with a virus. These are fever, muscular pain, sore throat, headaches, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, decrease of the liver and kidneys functions, internal or external bleeding. One can easily add information about modern researches and vaccines against the Ebola virus in this diagram.

Example 5: Influenza Virus Nomenclature

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This sample was designed based on the Wikimedia Commons file "InfluenzaNomenclatureDiagram.svg" and illustrates the influenza A virus nomenclature system and the virion structure. The type A viruses cause the most severe diseases and are the most virulent human pathogens. The virion of the influenza A virus is 80–120 nm in diameter and produces ellipsoidal, bacilliform, and filamentous particles. Each detected influenza virus is identified by the virus type, geographic origin where it was first isolated, strain number, year of isolation, and virus subtype (HA and NA). The influenza virion includes the hemagglutinin (HA or H) and neuraminidase (NA or N) proteins on the surface of the particle. Based on these proteins the Influenza A viruses were classified and sixteen H serotypes and nine N serotypes have been identified. This sample shows one of the influenza A viruses — A/Fujian/411/2002 (H3N2). Use Medical Virology solution to succeed in health science and virology illustration.

Example 6: Rabies Virus

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows the Rabies virus structure and was designed based on the Wikimedia Commons file "Rabid virus schema.png". It is a neurotropic virus that causes rabies in humans and animals. The saliva of animals is the main path of this virus transmission. The Rabies virus is 2–10 µm in diameter, has helical symmetry and cylindrical morphology, is enveloped and has a single-stranded RNA genome with negative-sense. The genetic information is contained in a ribonucleoprotein core (RNP). The RNA genome of the virus encodes five proteins: nucleoprotein (N), glycoprotein (G), phosphoprotein (P), matrix protein (M), and viral RNA polymerase (L). The genomic RNA is tightly encased by the nucleoprotein, the phosphoprotein and polymerase are associated with the RNP, the glycoprotein forms the spikes on the virus surface, M protein is associated with both RNP and the envelope. The transcription and replication occur in the cytoplasm inside the Negri body.

Example 7: Stop the Spread of Germs COVID 19

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

The main way to stop the COVID-19 pandemic is to prevent the spread of the infection. This infographic sample describes all ways how to stop the transmission of respiratory infections like COVID-19. The main points include the compliance of precaution, the use of protection tools and careful observance of personal hygiene rules. It is required to often wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, use the antiseptics, control yourself to avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands because these are the straight ways of infection penetration. Use the tissues when cough or sneeze and then dispose them directly into a waste container. Increase your immunity and strive to avoid close contact with infected people, if it is absolutely necessary, then use special protective equipment. Stay home when you are sick, except the need to get medical attention, with the obligatory wearing of surgical masks in public to prevent transmission of microbes to people around.

Example 8: Virus Entry Into the Body

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample infographic shows the typical pathways for viruses to enter the human body before they multiply, causing harm and destroying the body. The sample was designed based on the Wikimedia Commons file "Typical sites of virus entry into the body.png". The whole set of sites where the virus can be implanted into the body is determined, including damaged areas of the skin, such as various abrasion, cuts, injury, insect bites, and various organs — nose, mouth, eyes, respiratory tract, urogenital system. The vector clipart of the upper part of the human body was used for this visual diagram from the solution's libraries. If needed, this infographic can be easily supplemented with the names of viruses that enter through the listed parts of a body and infect them, information about the stages the viruses pass after the entering the host cells and processes they provoke, immunization, and herd immunity formation.

Example 9: Virus Size

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

The viruses are the most common living organisms on the planet, tiny intracellular microbes-parasites that live and reproduce only inside a host. Viruses are so small that pass through membrane filters that trap common bacteria. Their sizes range from 15-18 to 300-350 nm. One drop of water can contain about a million viruses. The viral particles are elusive for a human eye and can be seen only with an electron microscope. This informative infographic sample shows the sizes of the most common human viruses. As you see, the size range is great, from 20 nm to 80x970 nm. Parvovirus is the smallest among the presented viruses and the Ebola virus is the largest one. Also pay attention to various forms of viruses, which can be completely different — cubic, spherical, filamentous, rod-shaped, etc. If you wish, less common viruses can also be added to this diagram in just a few seconds, simply drag them from the solution libraries and add the characteristics.

Example 10: Why Social Distancing Matters

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the combination of libraries from the Medical Virology Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample focuses on temporary social distance or physical distancing and why it greatly matters during the pandemic. Social distancing is a set of non-pharmaceutical measures and interventions directed to the prevention of spread of the dangerous contagious diseases. This involves the reduction of close contacts between people, maintaining a physical distance, restriction for gathering in large groups, cancellation of mass gatherings, restriction for the movement of people, isolation, quarantine, the closing of schools and enterprises. These measures allow decreasing the spread of infectious diseases, reducing the probability of contacting with an infected person, so breaking the chain of the disease transmission, reducing the quantity of diseased and deaths in a case of severe diseases, avoiding overburdening healthcare systems. Nevertheless, social distance is justified and effective only in cases of a disease transmitted by airborne droplets, droplet contacts, direct or indirect physical contacts.
