Coronavirus is a type of virus. There are many different kinds, and some of them cause disease. A newly identified type has caused a recent outbreak of respiratory illness it’s like the common cold to more severe diseases such as severe respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) now is called COVID-19.
Coronavirus is the name for a large group of illnesses, including the common cold and other respiratory infections. The 2019 novel (the term “novel” means it’s a new form of the virus) coronavirus has been named SARS-CoV-2 and causes a disease called coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19. The origin of the virus is still not clear, but we learned about this virus after a cluster of severe pneumonia cases were reported on New Year’s Eve 2019 in the city of Wuhan, China.
Four months ago, in China specially in Wuhan a new virus was born. Some people say that the virus came from an infected bat, and some people support the other theory which was a laboratory mistake which was done by the workers. At the first story we have an infected, bat which was ate by someone in Wuhan and then all started. This human was ignoring the symptoms and continued his life like none of that ever happened, until one day that he went to the hospital and the virus was already developed in his body and affect a lot of people in his way before everyone could notice. At the end this virus was ended up affecting the most, of the people in China.
Coronaviruses are a family of viruses which can cause acute respiratory problems like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and they were primitively spread from animals to humans. The name of this virus originates from the Latin word “corona” which means crown, beneath the electronic microscope the coronavirus looks like it is encircled by a solar corona. The newly observed novel of coronavirus is called COVID-19, it was first discovered in December of 2019 in China and had not been found in humans till then (Aljazeera 2020) (World Health Organization 2020). When a person ate a bat, the current strain was transmitted to the individual and caused respiratory problems which led to its death. The disease was rapidly appeared have a structural similarity to the virus that caused the SARS. As in two previous examples of development of coronavirus disorder in the past eighteen years – SARS and MERS – COVID-19 outbreak has provoked critical challenges for the national healthcare systems, research programs and medical associations (Fauci et al. 2020).
It is true the fact that, since the previous year there was a new treat for humankind that is called coronavirus. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause diseases from the common cold to more severe occasions such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
Coronavirus has glycoprotein spikes that project from their surface and look like corona from which their name derives. Coronavirus is not a newly discovered virus. Coronaviruses are a large group of related viruses which might cause illness in mammals like humans and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild such as a common cold or more severe diseases like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19. The COVID-19 outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and ever since this virus is spread all over the world with 1.503.900 confirmed cases and 89.931 total deaths. That is the reason why World Health Organization calls it a pandemic. The origin of COVID-19 is unknown but there is a theory that it was caused by bats. This coronavirus does not have an age limit.
