Corona Viruses are a large family of viruses that cause infections ranging from the common cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Originated from China, this virus attacks the respiratory system, causing pneumonia-like lung lesions. The WHO has declared an emergency in China with more than 800 confirmed cases and 41 deaths.                                                                        

Corona virus spreads, in the same way, other cold-causing viruses spread like coughing, sneezing and touching the infected person’s hand or face. 

Some of its symptoms include:

  • A runny nose

  • Headache

  • Cough

  • Fever

  • Shortness of breath

  • Chills

  • Body aches

Prevention 

There is currently no vaccine to prevent the Corona Virus. As prevention is better, we can apply some of the following preventive measures:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
