As is implied in the name COVID-19, ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease and 19 represents the year of its occurrence. Coronavirus is a single-stranded RNA virus with a diameter ranging from 80 to 120 mm. The COVID-19 pandemic is deliberated as the most decisive global health mishap of the century, and the greatest one that humankind has faced since the 2nd World War. In December 2019, a new transmittable respiratory disease emerged in Wuhan, China and was named by the World Health Organization as COVID-19, a new class of coronavirus.
Coronavirus spread around the world, with 2,235,609 people infected and 155,446 dead. Across the globe, people are being urged to self-isolate to prevent the spread of the virus, and China’s death toll is at 4,632, where the disease originated. Italy is another hot-spot for the virus, with the total number of infected people at 172,434. Cases and deaths have slowed in China, but more cases are breaking out around the world. Now, Spain’s death toll has also surpassed China’s, with 20,019 to have died in Spain while infections in the country have reached 191,994. Since the virus was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December, outbreaks have been confirmed in more than 100 countries and territories.
Several health specialists believe that coronavirus instigated in bats or pangolins. The first transmission to humans was in Wuhan, China. Meanwhile, the virus has frequently spread through contact. When people with COVID-19 exhale out or cough, they eject tiny dews that encompass the virus. These dewdrops can enter the mouth or nose of someone without the virus, triggering a contagion to occur. The most common way that this illness spreads is through close contact with someone who has the infection. Nearby six feet distance can cause this infection.
