Coronavirus is an epidemic that is prevailing currently in the whole world. Various types of infections make a group known as coronavirus infection that typically affects the respiratory tract of humans and is mainly associated with the common cold and pneumonia. Scientists have found that coronavirus can infect birds, mammals, including humans. There are mainly four human coronaviruses that are named as 229E, NL63, OC43, and HKU1. It usually uses humans as their natural host. These kinds of viruses are more likely to spread than harm their human host. The virus is transmitted between humans when they breathe, cough or sneeze.

The coronavirus symptoms can vary from person to person. The symptom includes sneezing, running nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever, and exacerbated asthma. The cardiopulmonary disease or a weakened immune system can make the condition of the patient more worse. Coronavirus can cause both SARS and MERS.

At the present moment, there is no confirmed treatment available for coronavirus, but some preventive actions that can be taken are mentioned below:

  • Avoiding close contact with the people who are sick.
  • Avoiding touching of eyes, nose, and mouth without washing hands.
  • Staying home when one is sick.
  • Drinking a lot of water.
  • The facemask should be used by people who show symptoms.
  • Washing your hands or using sanitizer for at least 20 seconds.
  • Covering of cough or sneeze with a tissue.

The virus cannot survive for more than a few hours on surfaces outside a human host, but it can be picked by a human from a contaminated surface in a short period.

The outbreak of Coronavirus started from China and now it has been spread into different parts of the world which includes countries like Korea, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Taiwan, Spain, Vietnam, Germany, France, Japan, Thailand, Canada, Australia and many more. Measures have been taken by the World Health Organization and by leaders of different countries to control the virus. Screening activity on the airport has been done to isolate coronavirus passengers so that they do not enter into other countries’ boundaries and spread the disease.

It has also impacted the economic condition and businesses worldwide on a large scale. Industries and small and medium-sized businesses are closing down, which has to lead to an increase in commodity prices in China. The Chinese economy is in trouble, which is also impacting the growth of other countries.
