British scientists claim that all particles of coronavirus on the planet will fit in such a jar. So does it mean, a 0.33 liter will be enough to accommodate the entire volume of the coronavirus on the planet?

British mathematician Kit Yates has calculated that all the particles of the coronavirus currently circulating in the world will fit in a 0.33-liter cola can.

A maths expert at the University of Bath has found that there are about two quintillions – or two billion – of SARS-CoV-2 viral particles in the world at the same time.

It’s amazing to think that all the problems, disruptions, difficulties and human losses that have occurred over the past year can be just a few sips, according to the expert.

Describing the steps involved in his calculations, Yates said that he used the diameter of SARS-CoV-2 – on average about 100 nanometers, or 100 billionths of a meter – and then calculated the volume of the spherical virus.

Even with the protruding spike proteins and the fact that the spherical particles will leave gaps when stacked together, he said, the total is still less than the volume of a single 330ml can of cola.
