2.What is Coronavirus?


Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. It is found in animals and, rarely, can be transmitted from animals to humans and then spread person to person.

3. What are the symptoms this coronavirus causes?


The virus can cause pneumonia. Those who have fallen ill are reported to suffer from :

Coughs

Fever

Breathing difficulties

In severe cases there can be organ failure. As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. The antiviral drugs we have against flu will not work. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system. Those with weakened immune systems may develop more serious symptoms, like pneumonia or bronchitis.

4.What causes a coronavirus infection?


The COVID-19 virus can be spread through contact with certain bodily fluids, such as droplets in a cough. It might also be caused by touching something an infected person has touched and then touching your hand to your mouth, nose, or eyes.

10 ways to avoid coronavirus and prevent yourself from getting affected:

Try to avoid people who are sick or meeting in large groups

Stay home if you are sick.

Cover your cough with a tissue or cough into your upper sleeve or elbow.

Do not cough into your hands.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Avoid touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

The Centres for Disease Control has issued travel advisories for several affected countries.

If you are traveling to an area where the COVID-19 is present, speak with your doctor.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing,

  or sneezing.
