You must have heard in recent news about the coronavirus outbreak. It is a common topic among members of our medical fraternity due to the persistent rise in the number of coronavirus cases. The first case of the coronavirus was registered in 2002 in China. On December 31, 2019, the WHO China office first heard about an unknown virus causing pneumonia in Wuhan. Since then, 5,974 patients have been diagnosed with the virus globally. Coronavirus first originated from seafood in Wuhan, China, from where wild animals such as birds, marmots, bats, rabbits, and snakes are traded illegally. Coronaviruses spread from animals to birds and are highly contagious. Wuhan Institute of Virology has released a paper showing that genetic make-up of new coronaviruses is almost 96% identical to the virus found in bats.
Airlines companies have witnessed a 30% cancellation in air tickets for flights between India and China. China itself has put all major cities on lockdown to control the coronavirus from spreading.
What is Corona Virus?
Coronaviruses are having a large family of viruses that may affect people and cause illnesses ranging from acute to chronic diseases such as MERS-Corona Virus (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and SARS-Corona Virus (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). A novel coronavirus (NCOV) is a new strain that was not previously identified. Scientists call these viruses zoonotic, which means that the disease gets transmitted from animals to humans. Coronavirus is even more contagious from humans to humans, and consequently, the number of patients suffering from coronavirus is persistently increasing.
What is nCOV?
NCOV is a novel coronavirus, a new strain in the coronavirus family which was not previously identified in humans. It gets transmitted from Birds and animals to humans. It is notorious as it multiplies quickly and may cause pneumonia-like symptoms. In severe cases, it may lead to the death of the patient as well. Coronaviruses such as nCOV cause upper respiratory tract infections to range from a common cold, cough, fever, and shortness of breath that can further progress to pneumonia. China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and the USA are nCOV affected countries. There is a persistent rise in the number of deaths due to coronavirus. Approximately 170 deaths have been reported in China, and now the virus is spreading across all regions of the country. In China alone, around 7,711 cases have been registered by Chinese health authorities until January 29. Approximately 16 other states have been affected by this virus.
Preventive Measures by the Indian government to stop spreading Corona Virus
To fight against the threat of the coronavirus outbreak, the Indian government has started screening the passengers coming from abroad at around 20 national and international airports besides adding testing laboratories to detect the virus. Approximately 35,000 travelers have been screened so far. Earlier, the National Institute of Virology was performing the tests related to coronavirus, but on Tuesday, the government activated four more testing laboratories.
Moreover, the Indian government has planned to bring back all Indians from China Wuhan, who are working professionals or students. China Wuhan is the primary center for the outbreak of the virus. Apart from this, the government is persistently keeping an eye on the situation so that timely action can be taken. Many state governments in India have instructed the healthcare department to construct isolated wards as a precautionary measure.
