Corona Virus

The Corona Virus isn’t as bad as you think


The Corona virus is spreading around the world but it is not a virus that will kill immediately it’s like the flu it could kill but mostly the weak like the elderly and people with pre-existing health conditions. The virus should not be a concern to people that haven’t been around people who have visited Wuhan or if they haven’t gone to the place themselves. However the virus is spreading and so far it has spread to the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. The virus originated in China and has gotten hundreds sick. China has said that the 17 people had been killed by the Corona virus back in December. The Corona virus is named 2019-nCoV and its considered in the same family as the flu or even the deadly virus SARS. This virus has never been seen before so it’s making a lot of concerns because it’s a brand new virus that has never been seen before. Scientist say that it could have originated in bats and it could have infected a human in a chinese animal market in Wuhan, and it’s spreading by people who are in close contact with the infected. The symptoms of this virus are similar to the flu and pneumonia and it’s really hard to tell if its the new Coronavirus or not without getting tested for it in a laboratory but and easy way to know is by just knowing that you probably don’t have it if you haven’t been to Wuhan or been close to a person who has been. Some obvious advice from the CDC is to avoid contact with sick people, animal markets, and dead or alive animals including raw meat, also washing your hands with soap, covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing, and if you are ever really badly sick and struggle to breathe just go to the doctors to make sure everything is alright. The first case in the U.S. was in Washington state and he had recently been to the city of Wuhan. The man had a mild sickness which means that he didn’t have a fever but he recovered really well without any vaccine or treatment. To make sure that this virus doesn’t spread more planes from Wuhan will be sent to five of the nation’s largest airports and will be tested and asked questions to see if its likely if they have this virus. However there are still flaws to this seeing how the virus can be dormant for 1 to 2 weeks. It is still unknown how savere this virus can be but for the moment is not as severe as SARS or MERS.
