Q – Tip 8 Fungi

This post of mine has me stumped,

mainly because the main difference between virus and fungus

is that the latter have spores.

Spores are like seeds.

Fungi grow from these spores.

If the spores are dense enough,

it can be carried by the air

and thus can be transmitted to another host by air.

The Covid-19 is considered a virus

and is given this title

by none other than the World Health Organization,

the W H O.

And WHO am I to contradict an organization

with a full panoply of very learned doctors. 

Which is why I am calling this post of mine

a shot in the dark.

If by any chance I hit the basket with this shot,

I should deserve more than three points.

After all I did make the shot

in the dark.

But what is fungus, anyway?

Mushrooms are fungi. Some are edible. I prefer them cooked with my roast beef. Some like, fairy rings on your lawn, are irritants. Molds are also irritants and they can start on old bread, breaded chicken and leftover dumplings. Molds may also appear on your bathroom walls and sinks. Mushrooms are commonly found in forests under dried leaves and grass. What is common to all of these is that they thrive on and over dead and decaying matter, And not only do they grow over their hosts, they transform the hosts to make replicas of its kind. It can thus be said that fungi is nature’s perfect scavengers, in that they convert decomposing matter into another kind of matter.

 

It is to be noted that the fungi on this fly started its work when they sensed that the fly was very inactive, or that it is dying, but not before. These fungi are also known to secrete juices on their intended hosts preparatory to its ingestion, probably to make it easier to absorb.
Now the covid-19 works similarly like a fungus, in that it starts work on inactive and human cells that are about to expire and have no chance to be replenished. Old people have these kind of dying, inactive, and hard to replace cells. Also, the coronavirus may have sensed lung cells which are tar-covered and dead. and started to work on them.

 

But why are these airborne spores not found on old human skin? Probably because they are rubbed off by the clothes the old people wear. Or they are washed off. Or they are even scratched off because they produce skin itch. The best way, therefore, to get rid of them is to take away the factors that make them grow, or have them subjected to an environment which prevents their growth. Remember that even roasted bread and breaded chicken can start molds.

In a nutshell,

there is not much to prove that the covid-19 is a fungus,

but there are much to say that it acts like a fungus.
