What is Coronavirus? How to prevent and vaccine for the virus
In China and whole world are afraid about the virus called CoronaVirus.
- Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.
- Coronaviruses is a zoonotic, that means they are transmitted between animals and people.
- Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
- Common signs are include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties
- In some severe cases, infection can cause to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
- To prevention of infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
- The cause colds with major symptoms,fever, throat swollen adenoids, in humans primarily in the winter and early spring seasons.
- The ways of treating viral infections. One is to find small molecules that stop viruses replicating by interfering with viral proteins.
- Antivirals are usually simple to manufacture, and can be taken in pill form.
- Antibodies are large proteins that bind to viruses and trigger their destruction.
- China has already tested antibodies against the coronavirus that caused the SARS outbreak in 2002.
- How it spreed: The same genetic analysis suggests that the virus may have developed the ability to jump from snakes to people thanks to a mutation in a gene for a protein. If the virus was secreted in the animals’ faeces, this could have become aerosolised and breathed in, some researchers speculate.
- Where the virus from:A recent genetic analysis suggests that the virus resembles viruses that infect bats and snakes. Researchers believe that it may have resulted from separate viruses in bats and snakes recombining. This could have happened in the wild, but may also have occurred in the market, where the animals have been kept in close proximity to each other.
