Coronavirus

With the widespread of the deadly virus called “Coronavirus,” the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a global health emergency over the new virus that has killed over 371 people in China.

Following the outbreak in the central city of Wuhan, the government of China has been forced to lock-down close to 20 cities and has quarantined an estimated number of 56 million people.

Here are some facts you need to know about the virus:

What is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus is a family of virus that causes illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. This virus was originally transmitted between animals and people.

The virus is believed to have originated from a seafood market in Wuhan where wildlife was also traded illegally.

The Coronavirus Symptoms

The symptoms of this deadly virus can include a cough, possibly with a fever and shortness of breath.

There are some early reports of non-respiratory symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea.

Many people recover within a few days. However, some people, especially the very young, elderly, or people who have a weakened immune system may develop a more serious infection, such as bronchitis or pneumonia.

Any Possible Cure In Sight?

Since the outbreak of the disease, scientists across the world have been working hard to understand the virus. The Chinese health authorities have posted its full genome in international databases.

Currently, there are no approved antivirals for this particular coronavirus, so treatment is largely supportive for now.

For the sickest patients with this illness, specialized thorough care in an intensive care unit (ICU) can be lifesaving.

How You Can Protect Yourself From Contacting Coronavirus.

  • Wash your hands with soap or use a hand sanitizer that contains alcohol.
  • Sneeze and cough into tissues or the crook of your elbow. If you get snot or spit on your skin, clean it off right away.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, especially people exhibiting respiratory symptoms and fever.
  • Stay home when you’re sick.
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean surfaces, such as countertops and doorknobs, with a disinfectant.
