There is a spread of the Novel coronavirus which is wreaking havoc in China, Wuhan. The outbreak of the virus began early in December 2019 and has started to spread. The people who were the first to become infected by the Covid- 19 were linked to the South China seafood wholesale market which has closed ever since.
Over 20 countries have reported cases, which also includes India, Thailand, Japan, Singapore, Hong King, Australia, US and the others. Many countries have set up screening centres for the people visiting other countries from China.
This is a large family of viruses that are together called as the Coronavirus. Most of the known symptoms only have simple effects on the people like as giving them a common cold and mild respiratory disease, but there have been two such cases of the virus that have shown massive effects on the infected which are SARA coronavirus and MERS coronavirus.

Are some of the signs and symptoms which have been noticed in the infected people. Some of the patients have also reported sore throat. There is been some speculation about the severity of the virus although these claims are not supported with proofs. Aged people and patients with chronic illnesses might post greater chances of having a severe disease as a result of this covid – 19.
The people who are traveling around the areas of living where the virus is prevalent are at a high risk of infection says WHO. Currently the coronavirus is only present in China and the non – residents of china who have been travelled to China recently and have been in contact with the infected people who are from China.
So WHO says that the people who are not residents of China is very low as long as you don’t come into contact with the non – resident of China who are infected. Also the World Health Organization says that a simple disinfectants can easily dispose the virus, if its on the surface and also the survival time on the surface of the virus is pretty low.
