UK - All Covid Virus Would Fit in a Coke Can

Arno Froese

All the COVID-causing virus circulating in the world right now could easily fit inside a single cola can, according to a calculation by a British mathematician whose sum exposes just how much devastation is caused by minuscule viral particles.

Using global rates of new infections with the pandemic disease, coupled with estimations of viral load, Bath University maths expert Kit Yates worked out there are around two quintillion—or two billion billion—SARS-CoV-2 virus particles in the world at any one time.

“It’s astonishing to think that all the trouble, the disruption, the hardship and the loss of life that has resulted over the last year could constitute just a few mouthfuls,” Yates said in a statement.

Arno's Commentary

This indeed is astonishing and frightfully real. At the time of writing, approximately 2.5 million people have died of Covid-19, with over 107 million confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. 

Countries that have taken coronavirus seriously—implementing strict rules and regulations—clearly show less casualties than other nations whose leaders publicly declared, “It’s just a little flu.” It is not, because this coronavirus was previously unknown. As we have mentioned several times: we may expect more to come.

After the sixth angel sounds his trumpet, we read in Revelation 9:15: “And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” When we compare the present pandemic with the judgments prophesied in the Bible, it’s still just child’s play. One of the most horrifying statements in Scripture is the fact that, even after witnessing one third of mankind being killed by diabolical forces, “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts” (verse 21).
