Could Covid-19 Be a Microorganism Carrying Carbon Monoxide?

  •  Abdul L. Bhuiyan    


It is speculated that a microorganism can take carbon monoxide from the surrounding atmospheric air through the process of adsorption. When this microorganism is exposed to sunlight / near uv light, the adsorbed carbon monoxide may transform into carbonyl diradical which together with the (polycarbonyl) polymer can cause harmful biological effects similar to those observed in COVID-19. For this, it can act as a virus identical with COVID-19. One important property of the speculated virus (SV) is that it can undergo mutation by inserting the associated carbonyl diradical at the C-H, C-O, and C-N bonds in DNA/RNA and their precursors which form its core.
