4 Cell Structure RNA gene containing 8 RNAs Roughly spherical, enveloped in a membrane that is taken from the host cell that it multiplies from Beneath the membrane is matrix protein that provides support to the outer membrane The interior contains the 8 RNAs, which are the genetic material of the virus Has “spikes” attached to the membrane that it uses to latch onto the host cell, break open its wall, and inject its RNA into it

5 Cell Structure (Continued)

6 Symptoms Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath Pain or pressure in chest or abdomen Sudden dizziness Confusion Severe or persistent vomiting Flu-like symptoms improve then return with severe fever Children develop a blue skin color
