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.
Lately, words like "virus" and especially "coronavirus" have entered our daily lives. But what exactly is a virus? It is a pathogen that infects the cells of an organism by incorporating its genome into the genetic material of its host. Through the control of cellular mechanisms, the virus multiplies, thus creating problems in the body.
Coronavirus did not escape from biological warfare laboratories and was not prepared by Biotechnology Research Laboratories or by a bioterrorism-related Laboratory, according to SCRIPPS RESEARCH INSTITUTE of the USA one of the top five research centers in the world.
A big question for the Coronavirus is whether summer with sunshine and warmer weather - as with flu, for example will help in dealing with the situation. The answer is optimistic. Many experts have questioned this optimistic scenario, which is also being researched at the University of Utah, will be implemented to help understand the response of the virus as times of the year change.
Since antiquity, millions of people have died from epidemics, viruses and deadly diseases. We made a retrospective and collected the most important diseases that shocked history and killed millions of people around the world.
