            Dracula’s portrayal of vampirism presents vampire tactics that open up the body for infection. The metamorphosis and control it exerts on characters in the novel, including Jonathan Harker, Renfield, Mina, and Lucy, show the infectious effect of vampirism. This reflects the current Covid-19 pandemic due to its inside out effects that take to fourteen days to blossom. Dracula’s portrayal of vampirism and the current Covid 19 pandemic are similar in the need for awareness of the prevalence of vampires and coronavirus,  unevenness in the vulnerability of both vampirism and coronavirus, and inability to detect one is infected by both viruses.
