Novel Corona Its Origin and Symptom
Its short form is COVID-19. The Corona disease is caused by a member of the Coronavirus family that has come from animals. It was first started in the city of the Chinese Republic Wuhan at the beginning of December 2019.
It came into limelight when the public health officials of China informed the WHO officials that a Pneumonia-like illness is spreading and disturbing the lives in Wuhan. The officials then confirmed that it is an illness causing by an animal virus called Corona and later declared it as a pandemic.
It started spreading quickly inside out Wuhan and eventually reached out to the other parts of the world.
Its symptoms can range from mild cough and little breathing difficulty to severe life-threatening pneumonia.
Corona Vulnerable Groups
The mild Corona form doesn’t normally kill the people. But this disease becomes severe in the people who have a lower or weaker immune system. However, most deaths from this Corona outbreak are reported in older people and the people who were already battling the underlying diseases like heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. While the other ones recover it normally within 14 days.
Corona A Highly Transmittable Disease
Another thing to ponder on Corona is that it is highly transmittable. It quickly spreads from one person to another. It usually spreads among the people who are in close contact with one another. It also spreads quickly in cold or watery environments. It mainly proliferates from an infected person to healthier ones. It transmits when the infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets infect the healthy person’s eyes, mouth or nose. So they also get sick. Thus the process of virus transmission goes on and on.
