The world is facing a severe issue with merely a disease that is causing death because there is not a proper vaccination or a tablet introduced yet to get rid of the infection produced by this deadly virus. The World Health Organization has recently announced the outbreak of coronavirus and declared that its origin is city Wuhan in China. It published a report telling that numerous people have died of it. More than two hundred and fifty people have been killed due to this virus. Around 9000 cases have been recorded in China and 10000 from the rest of the world.
A sudden death in China made people crazy that what is this incurable infection which is not understood by the doctors. So far, many countries have evacuated their people from China because of this virus. A study proves that in 2003-2004 a severe acute respiratory syndrome broke out in China, but due to timely precautions, it was contained.
What is coronavirus?
According to WHO, coronaviruses belong to the class of viruses transformed from animals which are eaten by men. Mostly, those people who intake bats soup, snake’s meat and dead mice and rats are at risk. This virus causes illness from the common cold to more deadly diseases such as SARS and MERS.
- SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.
- MERS stands for “Middle East respiratory syndrome”.
These viruses transform mostly from animals to human. SARS, for example, is supposed to have transferred from civet cats to humans while MERS moved from a camel to humans. Some known coronaviruses are multiplying in animals that have not yet infected humans.
Origin of the Word ‘Corona’
The word coronavirus has derived from a Latin word Corona, meaning crown or halo, which means aura or smell to spread fast. Under an electron microscope, the duplicate of the virus suggests a lunar corona. A first coronavirus, recognized by Chinese experts on February 23, 2019, and named 2019-nCoV, which was new stress that had not formally known in humans. Majorly, human to human transmission makes it easy to spread, which has confirmed that it’s a transmitted disease and transmits when an infected human comes in contact with a non-diseased person.
What are the symptoms?
According to the WHO, cyphers of septicity include:
- Shortness of breath and breathing difficulties
In more severe cases it can direct to:
- Severe acute respiratory syndrome
- Kidney failure and even loss of life.
The incubation period of the coronavirus is unknown. It remains unexpressed for most probably 10 to 14 days. When the patient comes to know that he is suffering from coronavirus, the patient can be at the death stage.
How deadly is it?
Some specialists say it may not be as fatal as other categories of coronavirus, but this type is dreadful because of the men’s carelessness. SARS, which killed nearly 1000 people worldwide, over 300 in China alone – occurred during a 2002-03 outbreak that also attacked China. It was a significant loss when doctors and medical experts could not diagnose and identify the disease.
MERS was also one of the severe attacks of coronavirus in China. At one time, it has killed over one-third of people in China who were to get infected with this deadly disease.
Where have the cases testified worldwide?
Most of the cases are reported in China because there is a market in city Wuhan, where it is noted to sell the stuff which should not be allowed as edible. All deaths have happened in China – the vast population belongs to Hubei Province. The virus has blown out too many Asian countries, and Australia, Europe, North America and the Middle East. Even these countries suffered because people from China moved there, and it is a human to human transmittable disease so it can spread in other states too. Approximately all the dozens of cases outside China are among people who only just visited there.
What is being thru to halt it from increasing?
There is no injection up till now for the new virus. Chinese experts have sealed off Wuhan. State broadcasting reported that the town’s superior facility centre against the virus said the destined move is to “determinedly cover the drive of the wide-ranging scattering” and save lives. On the international level, many states have cancelled their travel to China and blocked their airports for China’s flight.
Airports around the world have placed screening counters, and some countries are operating to rescue their peoples from Wuhan.
Where did the virus create?
Chinese experts are still trying to determine the derivation of the virus, which they say came from a seafood market in Wuhan where wildlife was being traded illegally.
Snakes–including Cobra and Chinese Krait are the primary cause to spread this deadly coronavirus according to expert Chinese scientists.
Is this a global warning and emergency?
The outburst has created a health disaster, the WHO has said. It has created a panic worldwide. A worldwide call is being made to countries around the world to organize their answer under the direction of the United Nations health activity. So, wisely international visitors have been called back from Wuhan China. America has just called upon to get their students and people back from China.
The international community should improvise before a severe non-tackle situation creates and should extract people out of Wuhan China. This outbreak is an alarming situation not only in China right now but also for the rest of the world.
