CoronaVirus is not a virus itself, it encounters due to a group of viruses; it has never appeared before in any part of the world. It affects the respiratory system of human. It has come from animals just like other viruses. It is rapidly growing in China. It caused the death of many people in other developed countries like China in some last days. Developing countries (America, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Taiwan & Australia) are extremely infected of this CoronaVirus. Hundreds of people of are being infected of this virus.
Below is the map of china with affected cities: (Marked)
Chinese people are limited by the government to only their houses. Those people who were infected if this virus, worked recently in meal shop, or in those shop who sold newly slaughtered animals in Chinese city, people who visited recently in Huanan seafood’s wholesale market (a central market of the city) were also included in the list of its victims. Horrible viruses, just like corona mostly has their origin in the animals. Flu & Ebola are the main example of this. Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers) are both caused by coronavirus that came from animals. People believe that Mers transfers from Somali Camels (Dromedaries) to animals. It is firmly believed by the people that the original origin of both of these viruses was Bats. It is the only idea that this coronavirus also came from Rabits, Beluga Whale, Rats & other mammals. That’s why now in Chinese region people are afraid of these Bats. Mers cannot be easily transmitted from humans to humans. It has greater causality, killing 35% of about 2,500 people who have been infected. It is a serious issue for all over the world. It may cause death of millions of people, in case if it doesn’t get any cure.

As the Chinese New Year is coming according to their lunar calendar, markets were rushed of people, but the government of china has restricted people to avoid going outside of their houses, because their huge chances of spreading the CoronaVirus widely country vise from the city. China is on the number 7 in CoronaVirus victims. There are already 6 countries suffering from it.
Actually people don’t know more about it that how dangerous it is until we get more of it. But it has the mortality rate of 3%. It means that if we compare it to the normal influenza’s mortality rate which only 1%, then 3% is the alarming situation for us because normal influenza which has only 1% mortality rate causes 400000 deaths in every year across the globe. But the death rate of Sars is more than 10%. A crucial difference is that unlike flu, there is no vaccine for the new coronavirus, which means it is more difficult for vulnerable members of the population. There is no need to Panic due to this virus. If you feel any of the symptoms of it, just go to the hospital, ask them to do your screening, & keep you in the isolation.
Wuhan is a city from where this virus is being spread. Wuhan has the population of about 10 millions. As the china is one of the most developed countries, people from across the globe go there to get education in any specific field like Doctorate or Engineering etc. Now all the students have been stucked there as Officials of China has announced the limitation of Wuhan city. Some countries also refused to bring their students back to their countries because the world is afraid of this dangerous CoronaVirus.
World Health Organization (WHO) has already declared an emergency alert for all over the world. There is no doubt that if WHO has declared an emergency alert then surely it is an alarming situation for all of us.
