It’s Coronavirus time

An outbreak of a pneumonia-like illness that started in the city of Wuhan has put health authorities on high alert in China and now all around the world, the disease has reached every region in mainland China. A deadly coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China, has spread to 13 other countries. The US has confirmed five cases: two in California, one in Arizona, one in Washington, and then one in Illinois this was on Jan,28.  The Coronavirus has killed more than 400 people and there have been more than 30,000 cases found. The deaths and cases are likely to rise until the outbreak is contained. Not only is it infecting humans and killing them, but it’s also affecting animals as well. Common human coronaviruses systems are runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever, a general feeling of being unwell. Feeling tired, Difficulty breathing, A high temperature, A cough and/or sore throat. If you were to just read the syments you might just think it was a common cold or the flu. The coronaviruses also spreads the same way as any other cold-causing viruses do, through sick people coughing and sneezing, by touching a person with the coronavirus person’s hands or face, or by touching things such as doorknobs tv remotes or drinking out of the same water bottle or cup that infected people have drunk or touched. Probably the scariest thing about this virus is that there is no cure yet found. 

So what’s gonna happen in the long run? Are we gonna find a cure anytime soon or are we just gonna let the virus let more people die left and right? All that we know now is that the virus is spreading like a wildfire and it’s gonna be hard to manage and maintain and it’s gonna be even harder to put out.
