    1.  In a typical Coronavirus infection, h0w many viral particles will the host produce/carry?                   Answer :      Well, when u typically talk about Corona then in many articles, it is said that approx.. 1000 viral particles requires to make person ill(general speaking).. but definitely again it’s vary person to person.. An immuno-compromised have high chances to get the infection as compared to the person having strong immunity.. but in contrast to this, if u are taken or exposed to lower number/amount of viruses, then in that case it would not allow the virus to replicate in such extent to make you ill..
    2. How many viral particles are needed for a person to be infected? Does that vary by different viruses?

    Answer: well the answer of this question is that number of viral particles vary virus to virus. here, the most important factor is the pathogenicity of those virus.. if the virus is more potent then their small no. of virus particles make person sock..

    hope you got the point..

    Thanks
