Corona Virus is the biggest Epidemic and has affected over 100 countries but there are ways to prevent it. We are all aware of the Coronavirus that has affected the entire world, originated in Wuhan, China, this virus has spread to the entire world and India is no exception. To date, there have been more than 50 cases reported in India.
It has reached Kerala, Karnataka, Punjab, Pune, and Delhi. It has the whole country is a frenzy of fear, but what is the Coronavirus and how does it affect the people? It is believed that Coronavirus was first found in a seafood market in Wuhan, China.
It later spread to different provinces of China, the Chinese New Year helped in the transmission of the virus. People who had visited the market were diagnosed with viral pneumonia and the cause is said to be the coronavirus.
However, there have been contradicting studies that suggest that it had nothing to do with the seafood market. Investigations are being conducted to determine the origin and cause of this virus. Meanwhile, the virus has spread throughout the world.
It has been seen that the Corona Virus spreads from person to person; there has been evidence of community spread as well. Community spread means people in a particular area are infected with the virus, and few of them don’t even know how they were infected.
The main symptoms of Corona Virus are:
- Shortness of breath
These generally start showing up in people within 14 days of when the people come into contact with the virus. In extreme cases, it can lead to severe respiratory problems, kidney failure and even death. If you see any of these symptoms, it’s advised to see a doctor immediately.
It’s best to avoid people who have recently visited the most affected countries like China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. It’s difficult to diagnose coronavirus as the symptoms are similar to that of a common cold or flu.
So it’s best to take a laboratory test to confirm. The latest data confirms 4087 deaths from coronavirus but there is a little ray of hope as 64,385 people have recovered as well. Doctors and nurses have been working day in day out to help those infected. They have been staying away from their families to treat the patients.
People often confuse Coronavirus with SARS which stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. There was an outbreak of SARS in 2003, in China it was over by 2004. The virus behind the SARS outbreak is similar to the coronavirus. Coronavirus is spreading faster and can cause severe illnesses.
