In many countries, including China, Coronavirus infection has created panic. So far more than 16,509 people have died. The number of victims is more than 338 thousand. Coronavirus patients have been found in 195 countries and territories.

What is the Corona Virus ( COVIT-19 )?

Another name for the coronavirus is 25-NCOV. It’s a coronary virus. There are many different types of the virus, but only 7 of these can be infected in humans.

Scientists say the virus may already be ‘mutating’ inside human cells, that is, changing the structure and taking new forms and multiplying. As a result, it can become even more dangerous. Experts confirmed last Monday that the virus could spread from one human body to another.

How terrible this virus is?

The virus infects the lungs of the human being and through the respiratory system, it spreads from one body to another. Like the common flu or cold, the virus spreads through coughs and coughs. However, it can also result in organ failure, various body disorders, and pneumonia and death. By now four percent of the victims have died, maybe more deaths. Also, there may be deaths that have not been identified. It is not yet clear how horrible the virus is.

A decade ago, because of one type of coronavirus called SARS (full name, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) 800 people died on earth was infected with the virus. More than 8,000 people were attacked. Another viral disease was Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome or MARS. It killed 858 people in 2012.

What is the sign of the coronavirus?

The main symptoms of coronavirus infection are difficulty breathing, fever and cough. Scientists say it takes about five days for the virus to show signs of infection after it is infused. The first symptom is fever. Then there is the dry cough. Respiratory problems occur within a week and then a patient has to be hospitalized.

How is this virus spread?

The disease originated from Wuhan city in central China. On December 31, the first Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization to the outbreak of a pneumonia-like disease in the city. The first one died on January 11.

However, experts still could not confirm exactly how the infection began. They say it was probably the source of any animal. From the animal itself, the virus first enters a human body and then spreads from person to person. In the case of the SARS virus, there is a record of entering the human body first from the bats and then from the sulfur. And the mars virus spread from camels.

In the case of the Coronavirus, there is talk of seafood in the city of Wuhan. The infection has been reported in people who have visited a city market. The wildlife was illegally traded in that market. Some marine animals such as the beluga whale can carry the coronavirus. However, chicken, bats, rabbits and snakes were sold in that market.

What is the treatment ?

No new vaccine or antidote has been discovered since the virus was new. There is not even a cure that can prevent the disease. The World Health Organization has already advised people to wash their hands regularly. They also suggested covering the nose and mouth during coughing and avoiding cold and flu-infected people. People in many parts of Asia have started wearing surgical masks.

Scientists say the current cure for the virus is to avoid contact with the virus. Doctors advise, wash hands frequently, do not touch the nose and mouth and wear a mask when going out of the room. The hands should always be cleaned, hand washed repeatedly. Do not rub your nose or mouth with your hands, you should wear a mask when you go out of the room.
