What is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus is a set of groups that existed long ago. Still, now it is in its established form; coronavirus is a set of viruses that affect humans and animals equally; it is a microorganism.

It starts its process from a common cold and cough, infecting the upper respiratory system. Poorly infected respiratory routes also prevail in different diseases.

One-third of the community is affected by this virus. It has an equal effect on infants and adults. Sometimes, it occurs in the form of diarrhea. Coronavirus was identified in Wuhan, China. The whole world is suffering from this infectious disease.

History of Coronaviruses

In the past, coronavirus existed in different forms and diseases. In 2002, SARS, EPIDEMIC occurred in China, with 8000 infected cases, in which it also affected the respiratory system severely. During 2012, 774 were killed due to this virus. Saudi Arabia suffered from MERS. The appearance of the coronavirus is like a crown; in Latin, a crown is called the coronavirus, and that’s the reason it got the name coronavirus. Currently, Coronavirus is from Novel Coronavirus 2019.

Coronavirus conducted in China’s Wuhan province, where its first case was reported on 31st December 2019. Local hospitals were reporting instances of severe pneumonia without any sufficient cause. No vaccines or medicines were responding to this disease. All cases were reported from the Wuhan region.

Wuhan is a wholesale seafood market. Wild animals also preferred to be sold here. About 59 cases were reported in the local hospital of Wuhan. After that, they were all isolated in JINYINTANG hospital, in which 41 were confirmed cases.

The isolation process was too late; these 41 persons infected thousands because it is the person-to-person transfer virus. Corona spread into all provinces of China within some weeks. To celebrate the New Year ceremony, thousands of Chinese travel to other countries; thus, different people from different countries are infected by this virus.

Assumptions 

Many assumptions are here to discuss coronavirus; some researchers say it is an animal to humans, and some consider fish, bats, snakes, and wild animals transplant viruses responsible for it. Other researchers proved the organized shape of Corona, which China suffered in 2002, or Saudi Arabia in 2012; there is no certainty in all these assumptions. Much research is taking place to solve this problem.

Symptoms and Precautions to keep away Coronavirus

Coronavirus has different symptoms in different patients. In some patients, it shows its signs mildly, and in some, it shows severely. According to WHO, its primary symptoms are fever, cough, and common cold.

Difficulty in breathing, vomiting, backache, headache, heavy breathing.

In severe cases, it can be adopted in the shape of Pneumonia, Kidney failures, multi-organ failure, and even death in most severe cases. 

It shows symptoms in younger than five years and older than 50 years old. It is a human-to-human transfer virus. If anyone observes the above symptoms in any person continuously. Contact the doctor because, after seven days, the symptoms get worse.

Precautions for Coronavirus

  • Wash your hands with soap and water, and 20 seconds are good to do this process.
  • Use hand sanitizer in case soap or water is unavailable.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask and tissue.
  • Use a bin after the process of sneezing and coughing.
  • Avoid every close contact who enacted the virus.
  • Try to avoid traveling on public transport. 
  • Avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • You can avoid gatherings and social activities.
  • Use the phone and search for online facilities in every walk of life.   

Method to diagnose Coronavirus

  • Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test is essential to diagnose this virus. 
  • This test has a sense of recognition of the genetic code of Coronavirus.

Outbreak of Coronavirus

This virus spreads due to droplet transmission. This means that when an infected person coughs and sneezes, a virus might cause its droplets. In the case of coughing and sneezing, cover the face with hand tissue. WHO emphasizes wearing N95 respirator masks. Confirmed patients need isolation because it’s a contagious infection.

Five coronavirus patients can infect about 550 persons; the common cold hardly affects 50 persons. This virus transmits about 6 feet long if tissue or the hand is unused.

It spreads ten times faster than the common cold or infection. It is a respiratory droplet infection, it would be best to take a nutritious diet; liquid contention is also helpful.

The Treatment and Vaccination

Hope is the key to overcoming coronavirus because no particular medicine is available. Only medication that works on symptoms and relieves the patient from pain. Antibiotics are not suitable in this situation because it is a virus, not a disease.

Coronavirus is spreading daily; WHO enforced health emergencies in all suspected countries. All medical associations, laboratories, doctors, researchers, and physicians are working hard to discover a vaccine against this virus. Still, a minimum of 6 months will suffice, or this period must be longer than one year.
