The main objective of part I is to create of a "non-epidemiological" model of the Covid19 pandemic, or more precisely, sets of models/equations with the formulas that allow to calculate changes in pandemic parameters over time, i.e. the number of infected, sick, antibody producing ["recovered"] and dead people, based on the multiplication of viruses and the existence of ceilings and blocks for virus.

The ceilings are the maximum number of viral binding sites [SARS CoV-2] in the human body [thus related numbers of affected people] and the blocks are the viral binding sites [in the blood/extracellular space] such that viruses thus bound do not multiply [subject of separate paper sent to EC Nutrition].

This needed the introducing: a/the concept of "human breath and virus cloud" thus to move on to pandemic calculations from one person to the whole population. b/a simple arithmetic ["2x2x2..."] model/s of virus multiplication in a group of people [and so in the entire cloud]. c/Hill equation [so its constants Ka and Xmax].

Keywords: Functional Receptors for SARS-COV-2; Maximal Amount of Viruses Bound Per Person; Binding of Viruses in Blood [Block]; Duplication Time; Exponential Curves; Hill Equation; Infection; Infectivity
