Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered Coronavirus. After the outbreak of the epidemic in China, it’s been declared a pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organization). There’s no cure or vaccine that’s currently available for this virus. Coronavirus (CoV) is an umbrella form with a variety of viruses that can affect animals and humans. They can be a cause of some common colds and, in severe cases Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV). Coronaviruses can be transmitted from animals to humans, and they can cause serious illness, thus known as zoonotic. It was believed that the COVID-19 was transferred from the civet cats and seafood market. Investigations are being carried out to infer the current cause and spread of the virus.
