Last week's of 2019 when the world was ready to welcome the year 2020 many local hospitals in Wuhan China reported an unusual number of cases who had severe pneumonia without with you are cause and you're not responding to any form of existing vaccine or medicines soon after a seafood market in the Hunan region was linked to all these kisses. This was a wholesale seafood market which had about a thousand Souls selling fish chickens box snakes rabbits and many other wild animals a very high human-to-human transmission rate, which was further increasing as a day has progressed.
Initial hypothesis was formulated that this was a new type of coronavirus that wore in the animals being sold in the seafood market of one this resulted in a fear that you could be similar to the first epidemic of 2002 which infected 8,000 people and killed 774 because this was going to be something much worse.
By early January 2020 about 59 suspected cases, but picked up from all local hospitals in Wuhan and isolated in the genuine Dan Hospital of Wuhan 59 suspected cases 41 were confirmed with the 2019 novel coronavirus infection that isolation was too late. And before they were isolated these cases had infected hundreds of others that eventually infected thousands and the starting the 2019 novel coronavirus epidemic.
What started as a localized epidemic in the central China quickly spread to involve all of the Chinese provinces in a manner of two weeks. This bread was escalated by the Chinese New Year and thousands of tourists out of the home situation became very dense when cases in other countries were also reported which were transmitted by International Travelers. The first cases were reported from Vietnam and soon after several new cases were reported from Germany Thailand, Japan Australia United States, Russia and a dozen of new countries leading to a global panic situation the epidemic coaster deaths posted on January 9th, 2024. The desolate Just Begun has of making this video the novel coronavirus epidemic has led to more than $95,000 phone cases of which 8000 series 65 countries have been affected with major outbreaks in central China South Korea, Italy and Iran.
More than 3,300 people have died due to this epidemic.
You can imagine the gravity of the situation by looking at these facts.
Who declared the epidemic as a global Health Emergency as of 30th January 2020 United Airlines and American Airlines all have completely suspended the flight to China by several other airline companies have severely reduced number of daily flights. The US government has temporarily banned entry into the United States by any foreign National who has traveled to China in the past 14 days. China has based its numerous cities in Cullman lockdown in effect has Warren die in millions of people. The Chinese stock market is constantly crashing and this has led to a global economic slowdown already. See the word coronavirus is derived from the Latin word Corona meaning crown or Halo Reach drivers with a characteristic appearance of this virus virus consists of a gourd of genetic material surrounded with an envelope of protein spikes. This gives it an appearance of a crown and Crown in Latin means Corona and the name.
coronavirus is a group of viruses that cause disease in mammals and birds. These are RNA viruses with a genome of 26 and 32 kilometers is new coronavirus have been detected every few years with the first ones being discovered in the 1960s, which caused mild respiratory infections in chickens, since then a number of different coronavirus have been discovered mostly everything birds birds and other small warm-blooded animals.
These viruses often get mutated in the animals, they circulate and Eureka close contact of humans with these animals these viruses can jump from the animal to the human to start a new disease many coronavirus have already infected humans, including the SARS coronavirus with leg to the SARS epidemic in 2003, the MERS Coronavirus and the human coronavirus nl63. The latest addition to these names is a novel coronavirus in formerly known as the Wuhan Coronavirus.
New viruses are detected all the time. It's known that coronavirus species circulate in a variety of animals. Sometimes these viruses can make a jump from animals to humans. This is known as a spillover and can be due to a number of reasons like mutations in the virus itself. What increased close contact between humans and animals like we discussed for example, most coronavirus is known to be transmitted from Camels to humans and SARS coronavirus from civet cats, the animal reservoir of 2019. Novel coronavirus is not clear yet many of the early coronavirus cases were linked to the South China Sea Food wholesale Market in Wuhan, but the earliest documented case which has been traced back to 1st December had no connection to the market surprisingly.
How do spider spreads from one person to another is not completely understood yet, but we know that the most common way it has been spreading is through droplet infection it is when a person who is infected coughs or sneezes and releases viral particles that remain suspended in the air and are picked up by another person. It is also transmitted through things that are infected person has been closed in contact with like use dollars clothes switches keys and door handles those who are the highest risk or people who are in close contact with animals, like animal Market workers and tools were taking care of infected like family members doctors or nurses.
Who has coined the term 2019 novel coronavirus acute respiratory disease to describe the disease caused by this virus indicating that most of the symptoms of the disease are related to the respiratory system from what we know is that there can be a number of symptoms ranging from mild to severe the mild cases can present with fever cough shortness of breath and the silver ones can lead to pneumonia kidney failure and death.
The most widely used test to detect the coronavirus infection is the PCR of the polymerase Chain Reaction. This test detects the minut quantities of genetic material of the virus and amplifies it so we can be studied easily. You can watch a video about PCR on a channel to know more about this links in the description bar down below.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent the 2019 novel coronavirus infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, which includes steps like washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds covering your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing using an alcohol-based sanitizer that contain 60% alcohol or more and avoid touching your eyes nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Stay home. When you are sick avoid close contact with people who are sick clean and disinfect frequently charged objects and cell phases.
The worker develop. The vaccine for Coronavirus is already underway scientists believe that research of mars attack scene, which was also coronavirus will make this job easier and hospitals are testing antiviral drugs to see if they have an impact.
Find the ratio of deaths to known cases appear slow. The figures are unreliable. It is far too simplistic to divide the number of deaths by the number of cases to calculate the death rate to get a figure of around 2% at the state of the outbreak but it depends upon a range of factors like your age sex General Health and health system you are in thousands of patients are still being treated and we do not know if any of those cases will die. The death rate could be higher.
It is because of the size and density of the population and close contact with animals hovering viruses.
The short answer to this question is absolutely as many of those who contract coronavirus will experience only mild symptoms include fever coughing and respiratory problems. Most people are expected to make a full recovery Arjun pose a particular risk for elderly people and those with pre-existing problems like diabetes or cancer.
