microbe 🦠

People usually call the Microbe emoji the germ emoji, bacteria emoji, and virus emoji. Its actual name, the microbe, is rarely used. A microbe is a bacterium grown in a petri dish. They are often observed by scientists and researchers under microscopes. Microbes have large amounts of cilia as well. Because of the pandemic COVID-19, the emoji had become largely used to reference it.

That said, COVID-19 has caused the bacteria emoji to become frequently used. You may use this newly-named covid emoji alongside the Face with Thermometer emoji or the Face with Medical Mask emoji and the Plus Sign emoji to announce to your friends or on social media that you have been declared positive for COVID-19. You can also use the microbe alongside the Syringe emoji and the Check Mark emoji to describe being fully vaccinated or your vaccination against COVID-19.

Microorganisms are also represented by the microbe emoji, which could be studied by scientists. This is why the emoji itself can represent medical and scientific advancement. When researching, this cell emoji is also applicable when placed beside the Petri Dish emoji and the Microscope emoji. This allows people to understand that you are conducting research into microbiology or viruses as a scientist or student.

🦠 Microbe is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 11.0 which was introduced in 2018.
