Is corona virus really deadly?Its a serious question among us these days.Everyone wants to know the reality of this virus.Is it necessary to be serious about it,or its just a hiked situation,made by our surroundings?Lets go deeper and know more about it.
Firstly,corona virus is not a single virus.Corona virus is a family of virus.Even the common cold we have during winters is also a type of corona virus.Corona virus was found in China’s Wuhan,on 31st December last year,for the first time.This is very novel(new) type of virus.Mostly,the source of corona viruses is mainly some animal,which gets spread from one human to another.Here,the exact source of Corona virus is not yet known,but some scientists suspect that it could be snakes or bats.
All the corona viruses have basically the same symptoms like cough,cold,fever,headache,runny nose etc,due to which it is difficult to identify whether is it common cough and cold or corona virus.At extreme case of corona,you could suffer from Pheumonia and difficulty in breathing.As per some new observations by doctors,new symptoms of corona have been found,in which a person suffering from this virus looses the ability to smell and taste anything.
Corona,in a person is confirmed by laboratory tests.Incubation period of corona is 2-11 days which means,if you get infected with corona,symptoms will take up to 11 days to show up.
How fatal is it for you?Total number of infected people and total number of deaths as a proportion,comes out to be 2% which means,the Mortality rate of this virus is 2%.Mortality rate is the chance of you to die due to this virus after getting infected.
The 2% people who died were of weak immune system,that’s why were not able to get recovered and died.The tradition of viruses,which goes on is like a virus which is more contagious has less mortality rate and vice versa.This means if a virus is spreading with great speed (highly contagious),it will have a less mortality rate and virus which is less contagious will have high mortality rate.But this does not means ,the death all over the world or country will be less,because of the fact that the virus is highly contagious.Same is with corona.As it is highly contagious,proper measures should be taken by each and every person to avoid this.As today,due to reckless behavior,many countries are suffering from this virus which has become deadly.
Also,as it does not has any proper treatment,which makes it more dangerous.Prevention and isolation is the only cure for corona in today’s date.As of now,no vaccine exists against this virus,but if your immune system is strong,then it may fight with the virus and you may get recovered very soon.
