As we all know that the Corona Virus is spreading from China to all over the world leading to death of people in masses.

Although, there are a handful of cases in US, UK, Russia and some other countries but the number can rise periodically high at any point of time if dealt with negligence. So, let’s take a look on the causes of Corona Virus.


A coronavirus is a group of several viruses that causes infection   in your nose, throat or mouth. Although it is a group of viruses, but every virus is not harmful. In the group, only 2-3 of the viruses are severely dangerous.

These were first identified in 1960s. Coronavirus spreads like any other bacteria of common cold or flu. These are air-borne as well as transmitted through articles, water, food and touch too. Their place of origination is not known.

Symptoms of Coronavirus

Coronavirus is as ordinary as common cold. If you have corona, you can’t even identify it because its symptoms are likely to be matched with Common Cold, Sore Throat, or any infection in upper throat.
You can also visit the nearby doctors or any hospital to take part in some lab tests if you are too worried about it. Then, it may be disclosed whether you have corona or not. I will strongly suggest visiting hospitals even if you have common cold (these days).
If corona spreads in your body, it can even lead to your death at the same standing point.

What We Shall Do ?

Absolutely, there is no vaccine for coronavirus. You can’t be pre-protected from this disease. But, there are some precautions which you can accept in order to be safe from coronavirus. Some of them are –
     ·   Stop eating non-veg until the virus disappears.  
     ·   Wash your hands thoroughly every time you touch something unfamiliar.

     ·    Stay away from the people who are affected with this virus.
     ·    Keep your hands away from sensitive parts like eyes, nose and mouth.
     ·    Do not travel to the severely affected countries like China.
     ·    If you are a resident of the affected countries, don’t travel to any place other than your home.
     ·    While being out of your home, wear a clean mask in order to stay safe from the virus.

The world has already witnessed several types of viruses came up in existence and killing people in masses. Some of them were SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), MERS (Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome) and Smallpox.

Causes of Outbreak

The causes of outbreak of Coronavirus in China are not clear. Even the government has not announced that how this virus came in China. But, the people are sharing different types of opinions based on the outbreak. Some of them are –
      This Virus came up in existence due to excessive intake of non-veg food. It is stated that this virus was present in a fish which was later cooked and eaten by one of the Chinese. Then, the spread of corona started.
                  One more claim states that this virus has spread due to the mistake of scientists who was observing it in a bio-lab. Due to their mis-handling, the virus escaped the laboratory and spread in China.

Instead of taking interests in the starting of corona, governments and people must think about the ways for stopping coronavirus to spread because if corona spread worldwide, then it may swallow up thousands of people.

More than 400 people have already died in the center of corona outbreak i.e. Wuhan in China.

Also a death has been reported in Philippines due to coronavirus. This is the first death outside China due to this deadly virus. Day-by-day, the severity of this virus is increasing and people are losing their and their dear one’s lives.

Moreover, a case has also been reported in India (in Kerala). It is the only case that appeared in India and the patient has been shifted to an isolated ward and given adequate amount of treatment per day.
   Also, coming ahead, the infection is starting in India as 3-4 cases of coronavirus are already confirmed and the patients were isolated in order to keep rest of the citizens safe.
Share this with all your family members, friends, and relatives so that they may remain safe from this deadly virus and live long life…
