For the last four centuries, the world has to face a natural disaster that affected the lives of so many people. Like, in 1720, there was an arrival of the Great Plague and in 1820, the 1st Cholera Pandemic took place. Both of them caused thousands of deaths. The condition got worse in the year 1920 when the Spanish Flu came. It eventually took millions of deaths of people suffering from this influenza.
About Corona Virus
In this 21st century, especially in the year 2020, a threatening condition named ‘Corona Virus’ has taken its place in almost every part of the world. Also known as COVID-19 or Novel Coronavirus, it has made a major impact on a global level. It stands for an infectious disease that can spread from people to people. The birth of this disease took place from the Wuhan region of China. It is believed to come from its wet market where dead and live animals are sold.
Today, it has spread its roots with such an impact that around 30,000 deaths have been addressed in just 3 months. It is because there wasn’t any serious impact of this virus in the December month of 2019. From person to person, it has made a chain and affected people’s life. It mainly affects the lungs by which the problem goes to a bigger level.
How Does It Spread?
Many people have a misunderstanding that this virus spreads in the air. The study suggests that it spread mainly from person-to-person. Like, if a person has come under its effect and his or her respiratory droplets go into the contact of another person through cough or sneeze, it takes place in another person’s body. Along with that, it may transfer between people who come in contact with another, within 5 to 6 feet.
Corona Virus Symptoms Day by Day
In the initial time, a person will feel sick for some days. It may vary from day one to more than a dozen days. One of the common symptoms during this stage includes tiredness, dry cough, and fever. In some cases, it can be serious and the person has to face troubles in breathing. It proves to be a bit dangerous for older people having medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, heart disease or those who are severely ill. It affects mainly those having lower immunity. That’s why special care is required.
Vaccine and Treatment
Right now, the doctors are trying to form a vaccine of this virus. There is no particular medicine in any corner of the world by which a person gets completely cured. Though, in some regions of India like Bhilwara, the doctors have attempted to provide a combination of some medicines which are used to treat malaria, HIV and Swine Flu. One of the great things is that a person who was found positive with COVID-19 got admitted. When he was treated with such medicines, his report was found negative in the second test. This has been a good move by the doctors and maybe this kind of treatment would heal other patients as well.
