Coronavirus: The Death toll has reached 406,564 across the world whereas 7,016,073 Cases have been identified globally

During the auspicious time of Lunar New Year – the Spring festival of China, a deadly outbreak of coronavirus has engulfed the city of Wuhan, considered the epicenter of the epidemic which is home to over 11 million people.

Facts About Coronavirus

The virus was first identified in the 1960s, but its origin is yet to be discerned. Coronavirus spreads just like other cold-causing viruses. Symptoms of harboring the virus could be: coughing, sneezing, having a stuffy nose and sore throat. Touching an infected person’s hand or face may also transmit the virus from human to human.

Though the viruses have different types; some of them are common and curable. However, there are also severe outbreaks like the recent one in China which the World Health Organization has confirmed as the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-n-CoV). It has been studied that the virus has been passed on from animals to humans, but it has not been previously identified in people.

As per the available reports, the source of the outbreak has been identified as a seafood market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan. To be precise, the city’s health commission says that the infection broke out between December 12 and 29. However, the animal outbreak has not been confirmed yet.

The market, which has been shut down after the epidemic, was home to China’s food stalls trading in different animals, snakes, marmots, and poultry. The market is also known as the ‘wet’ market as the people of China likes their meat to be ‘warm’.

Though the epicenter of this outbreak is in China, the virus is now traveling from China to other countries. Symptoms of the infection of this virus have been found in people from the United States, France, Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Macau, Japan, and the Philippines. Other countries like Afghanistan have come under its fold recently.

Further, the virus has escalated very quickly as the total number of cases have risen to  cases 7,016,073 worldwide. More so, there is a trend of spike seen in the cases. Italy has become the center of the cases in Europe. While in South Korea, confirmed cases have rapidly rose.

Macau, populated with mainland tourists, has confirmed five cases as of January 27 and eight cases in Hong Kong. In Taiwan, four cases have been identified, whereas France confirmed three, Thailand has confirmed cases of fourteen, Singapore five, while Nepal got its first too. Australia has also established five confirmed cases of the virus. As of today, the number of cases in all these countries is on the rise. After US passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship reached the US, there is now a spree of coronavirus cases in the US.

India is also on high-risk alerts from the virus outbreak. The Health Ministry has stepped to scan passengers coming from China at the Indian airport itself. People who show symptoms of the virus are being quarantined in cities such as Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi.

On January 28, three men who flew down from China walked into the RML hospital of Delhi with a complaint of similar symptoms. They have been kept under observation. Similarly, another man in his 20’s studying medicine in China who flew down to the Pink City for post-graduation has been admitted to the SMS hospital for suspected coronavirus infection. In India, there is a total of 56 cases now.
