What is CoronaVirus?

Corona virus belongs to such a family of viruses whose infection can cause problems ranging from a cold to shortness of breath. This virus has never been seen before. The virus infection started in December in Wuhan, China.
More than a thousand cases of Covid 19 have been found in India, in which 29 have died. To prevent further spread of corona virus, a lockdown of 21 days has been announced across the country. We are telling you here what you can do to prevent corona virus infection.
To avoid corona virus that is 'Covid 19', you wash your hands regularly with soap and water. When someone infected with the corona virus coughs or sneezes, very fine particles of their spit are spread in the air. These particles contain viruses of the corona virus.
These viral particles can enter your body by way of breath when approaching an infected person. If you touch a place where these particles have fallen and then touch your eye, nose or mouth with the same hand, then these particles reach your body..
In this case, using tissue while coughing and sneezing, not touching your face without washing your hands and avoiding contact with the infected person are very important to prevent the virus from spreading. According to medical experts, face masks do not provide effective protection.
What are the symptoms of corona virus infection?
After reaching the human body, the corona virus infects its lungs. This causes fever first, followed by dry cough. There may be problems in breathing later. 
It takes an average of five days for the virus infection to start appearing. However, scientists say that in some people its symptoms may be seen even after much later.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there may be up to 14 days between the time the virus reaches the body and shows symptoms. Although some researchers believe that this time can also be up to 24 days.
The corona virus spreads more than the body of those who show signs of infection. But many experts believe that this virus can spread even before making a person sick. The initial symptoms of the disease are similar to those of colds and flu due to which one can easily get confused.
 

How deadly is the coronavirus?
Compared to the statistics of corona virus infection, the number of people killed is extremely low. Although these figures cannot be relied on completely, if the data is to be believed, the death rate due to infection can be only one to two percent.
Currently, treatment is being done for thousands of infected people in many countries and the death toll may increase. A World Health Organization study based on information gathered about 56,000 infected people suggests that - 6% people became seriously ill due to this virus. These included lung failure, septic shock, organ failure and death risk.
Older people and those already suffering from respiratory disease (asthma) due to corona virus infection, those facing problems like diabetes and heart disease are more likely to become seriously ill.
More than a thousand cases of Covid 19 have been found in India, in which 29 have died. To prevent further spread of corona virus, a lockdown of 21 days has been announced across the country. We are telling you here what you can do to prevent corona virus infection.
The work of making corona virus vaccine is still going on. Those who have returned to the UK after traveling to other countries have been advised to separate themselves from others for a few days. Other countries have also taken steps like closing school colleges and canceling public meetings in their own countries to avoid this virus.
The World Health Organization has also released information about ways to take precaution for the people. Upon seeing signs of infection, the person should contact their local healthcare officer or employee. Those who have come in contact with the corona virus infected person in the past will be investigated.
All patients arriving at the hospital, who have symptoms of flu (colds and breathlessness), will be tested by the Health Service Officer. You will be asked to wait until the test results are out and keep yourself away from others.
