Let’s keep it simple and straight so that you guys shall not be misled and thoron with any wrong information. A coronavirus is a kind of common virus that creates an infection in your nose, sinuses, or upper throat. Most coronaviruses are not critical. But some types of coronaviruses are dangerous, though. About 858 people have died from Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), which first developed in 2012 in Saudi Arabia and then in other countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe.
In April 2014 (according to WHO report) the first American was hospitalized for MERS in Indiana and another case was recorded in Florida. Both had just returned from Saudi Arabia. In May 2015, there was an outpouring of MERS in Korea, which was the biggest outbreak outside of the Arabian Peninsula. In 2003, 774 people died from severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) fury. As of 2015, there were no further reports of cases of SARS recorded.
But In early 2020, the world once again faced the epidemic like a virus following a December 2019 outbreak in China. Thus, the World Health Organization classified a new type, 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Often a coronavirus causes upper respiratory infection symptoms like a stuffy nose, cough, and sore throat. But you can treat them with rest and over-the-counter medication. The coronavirus can also induce middle ear infections in children.
You can take lab tests, including nose and throat cultures and blood work, to find out whether your cold was produced by a coronavirus, but there’s no reason to worry okay. Yes the outbreak is deadly and it is causing deaths as well, but cured on time and detected can help save lives. The test results wouldn’t change later on how you treat your symptoms, which typically go away in a few days. But if a coronavirus infection spreads to the lower respiratory tract (your windpipe and your lungs), it can give pneumonia, particularly in older people, people with heart disease, or people with relapsed immune systems.
