Issues related to human coronavirus (SARS CoV-2) are a burning topic of research in present times. Due to its easily contagious nature, real experimentation under laboratory conditions requires a high level of biosafety. A powerful algorithm serves as a potential tool for the analysis of these particles. We attempted to simulate the light scattering from coronavirus (SARS CoV-2) model. Different images were modelled using a modified version of a Monte Carlo code. The results indicate that spikes on the viruses exhibit a significant scattering profile and that the presence of spikes during modelling contributes to the distinctiveness of the scattering profiles.
