What are the diseases caused by this virus?

Some types of coronavirus are more serious causes of disease.

Various diseases that might be caused by coronavirus are as follows:

Around 858 people died of MERS, which first appeared in 2012 in Saudi Arabia and in other countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe.

In April 2014, the first Americans received special treatment at the hospital because of MERS in Indiana and other cases were also reported in Florida. Both are known to have just returned from Saudi Arabia.

In May 2015, the MERS extraordinary event occurred in Korea, which was the largest extraordinary event outside of Arabia.

Symptoms of MERS due to coronavirus are fever, difficulty breathing, and cough. The disease spreads through close contact with an infected person.

However, all MERS cases relate to people returning from a trip to the Arabian Peninsula.

MERS is fatal to 30-40% of sufferers.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is an infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV. This is usually referred to as a life-threatening form of pneumonia.

The virus initially appeared in Guangdong Province in southern China in November 2002, until it finally arrived in Hong Kong.

SARS-CoV then began to spread rapidly throughout the world and infected people in 37 countries.

In 2003, a total of 774 people died because of the extraordinary SARS incident. In 2015, there were no further reports of SARS cases.

SARS symptoms develop within a week and begin with a fever. Just like the flu, the symptoms felt by people with SARS due to coronavirus are:

  • Dry cough
  • Chills
  • Diarrhea
  • Hard to breathe

Pneumonia, a severe lung infection, may develop later. In later stages, SARS causes failure of the lungs, liver, or heart.

Pneumonia due to 2019-nCoV
At the end of December 2019, the WHO announced a case of pneumonia whose cause was unknown in the Wuhan City area, Hubei Province, China.

On January 7, a new type, the Coronavirus 2019 (2019-nCoV) was identified as the cause of the case.

The 2019-nCoV virus is a new type of coronavirus that has never been identified in humans before.

According to the Journal of Medical Virology, most people infected with nCoV-2019 are exposed to wild meat sold at the Huanan fish market, which sells poultry, snakes, bats and other livestock.

The study concluded that the coronavirus that infected humans at the end of December 2019 was of snake origin.

Quoted from WebMD, recently there were 300 cases that occurred in China with an increasing number of deaths. A tourist is known to have brought the virus to the United States.

On January 10, 2020, WHO published a series of temporary guidelines for all countries on how to prepare for the virus.

The United States Agency for Disease and Prevention, CDC, states that the case of nCoV-2019 was first announced in the United States on January 21, 2020.

Information dealing with coronavirus is how to monitor infected people, test samples, treat patients, control infections in health centers, maintain proper supplies, and conduct public outreach about this new virus.

How does this virus spread?
The spread of coronavirus from human to human is something that has not been specifically studied. However, it is believed that the spread of coronavirus is through fluids released from the respiratory system.

Some possible coronavirus spreads are:

  • Through the air (coughing and sneezing without closing your mouth).
  • Through the touch or handshake of an infected person.
  • Make contact with surfaces or objects contained by the virus, then touch the nose, eyes, or mouth.
  • Sometimes, the spread of coronavirus is through contact with feces.

The ability of the coronavirus to mutate is one of the things that is believed to make this virus very contagious.
