    What is the Coronavirus?
    Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that usually effect the respiratory tract in birds and animals, including, cats, dogs, rodents, pigs, cattle and humans.
    In 1960 researchers first discovered a coronavirus that will affect humans, this version, human coronavirus or HCoV is one that is responsible for most common colds and more serious diseases are not that common, until the recent outbreak (2020) of COVID-19.
    There are 3 new variations of the coronavirus that have been discovered in recent years, these include:
    SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).
    A serious and sometimes fatal variant of the coronavirus that was discovered in China in 2002 and spread globally.
    MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome).
    A severe illness that affected the respiratory process. MERS spread to several other countries around the world although all cases were linked directly to traveling to the Middle East.
    COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019).
    Discovered in late 2019 in Wuhan City, China. This variation of the virus has spread to several countries including Italy, The United States, The United Kingdom, Australia and Ireland.

    The Coronavirus can mean different things to different people. To medical doctors it is a respiratory illness unlike any other they have seen; to scientists it is a puzzle that needs to be solved; to those who believes in conspiracies, it it a covert attempt at controlling people and ushering in the New World Order. While to the average person it is a source of fear.

    I take no sides in particular, as when all these different meaning will give us a full picture of what the virsu is.

    Corona virus is a type of virus. There are many different kinds and some cause disease. A newly identified type has caused a recent outbreak of respiratory illness which is now called COVID-19. This new corona virus spread through droplets released into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The droplets generally do not travel more than a few feet, and they fall to the ground in a few seconds- this is why social and physical distancing is effective in preventing the spread. The symptoms mainly shown in the infected people after approx 14 days of exposure to the virus. The basic symptoms include cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches, sore throat, unexplained loss of taste and smell and diarrhea.

    Corona Virus, Covid-19, is the dreaded disease the world now is facing. It is the invisible enemy, so powerful that even experts in the Medical field are all baffled by it. As of writing , there is still no known cure for Covid-19. There are drugs that are being tested by no vaccine yet. In this pandemic times, so many countries are affected in terms of economy, lack of transportation, food shortage for some, and countless lives lost. Where there is lock downs and quarantine period being implemented, the only thing we could and should do is to follow our government's guidelines and protocols. Now is the time for all of us to be law-abiding citizens of our countries. We should also be equipped with the right information to win this war.

    I think coronavirus is an instrument for us to know what's really matters in the world. coronavirus teaches us that life is more important than any other and that everything in this world is just temporary. so what my point is not everything in coronavirus is negative it also brings positivity for all those people seeking rest for their whole life of making their job in the world. this is where we can reconnect to our almighty God who created everything. I think this is also the time for our mother nature to rest and to regain her energy by vanishing all the pollution that the world is given before.
