What is Coronavirus?
Coronavirus is a ‘novel corona’ virus. The disease infects the nose, respiratory tract, and upper neck. Coronavirus can be found on the body of an animal or animal, which is infected quickly like the “SERS” virus and can enter the human body directly from the animal’s body.
According to Wikipedia, Coronaviruses are a virus group that infects the bodies of mammals and birds, causes diarrhea in cows and pigs, and causes inflammation of the upper respiratory tract in chicken’s body.
The virus attacks the human body’s respiratory tract, which is initially a mild attack, but over time it quickly causes serious physical disasters.
Hopefully, most Coronavirus are not harmful to humans. However, there are some that can be terribly harmful to humans, such as SARS, and MERS.
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) infected in Saudi Arabia in 2012 killed 858 people. Later, it spread to the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. Later in May 2015, MERS spread to Korea. “SARS” was diagnosed with severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) disease in 2003. After 2015, SARS has not been seen. MERS and SERS – both are of the nature of Coronavirus.
But, in January 2020, the World Health Organization detected a new type of virus. The virus is detected in China. Name, 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
How did Coronavirus come about?
Coronavirus first came into existence in the 1960s. However, people have no idea of its origin. The virus is named after the crown-like shape used on the king-queen’s head. Although not always, in some cases coronavirus can infect both humans and animals.
Similar symptoms are seen in most cold and cold coughs, especially in patients with coronavirus, especially in young children. The presence of coronavirus has generally been observed in the United States in the spring and winter. However, anyone with the virus can be infected at any season.

To confirm the presence of coronavirus in the body of a lab infected person, it is necessary to confirm through the laboratory. Usually the nose and throat samples are cultured and blood is examined. When the person suffering from the disease spreads to the lower part of the respiratory tract, namely, the pneumonia (pneumonia) – it can be transmitted to pneumonia – especially those with heart disease, or those with poor immune status.
The main symptom of corona virus infection is difficulty breathing. It is accompanied by fever and cough. Organ Failure or various body parts. May be pneumonia. Scientists say that it takes about five days for the virus to show signs of infection after the virus is infected. The first symptom is fever. After that, dry cough appears. Breathing problems occur within a week.
How coronavirus spreads
Experts have confirmed that the virus can spread rapidly from one human body to another. The corona virus infects the lungs of the human body and through the respiratory system it spreads from one body to another.
What to do if you suffer from coronavirus?
No anti-vaccine vaccine has been discovered so far in the treatment of coronavirus. To prevent infection from this disease, the following precautions should be taken to prevent the common cold:
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used. Do not bring your hands and fingers close to the eyes, nose and mouth. Keeping away from the person affected. The medical treatment of a person with coronavirus is similar to the treatment of a cold person.
Get enough rest. Drink lots of water. You can buy the right medicines from the pharmacy for throat pain and fever. However, aspirin cannot be given to children or adolescents under the age of 19. Instead, WebMD advised them to feed ibuprofen or acetaminophen (acetaminophen). If the victim suffers pain and sore throat, taking a humidifier or warm hot water can provide some relief.
Coronavirus attacks can often be caused by MERS, or SARS. Although, coronavirus attacks are a natural phenomenon in the United States – it is not regarded as very dangerous. If anyone is infected with the virus, the symptoms should be taken to the care of the appropriate doctor.
Since it is not yet possible to fully know about a new virus and its spread and spread, it is possible that travelers traveling from China to Bangladesh and from China to China will be immune to the normal respiratory system during the journey. Or if it’s not necessary for a while, then it’s best to avoid traveling to China.
How helpful is the mask to prevent corona virus?
Inexpensive surgical masks can prevent, but not eliminate, the coronavirus. The main symptoms of corona virus infection are: breathing, fever, cough, pneumonia, etc. It can cause the death of an infected person by disabling one or more organs in the body. Meanwhile, scientists have not been able to make such an antidote to the Corona virus.
However, the nose is covered with a mask when going out of the room to protect against the virus. The question is whether it is possible to prevent corona virus infection using a mask like this?
Experts say using a mask can help prevent the spread of the virus if used in the right weather and in the right way.
Marybeth Sexton, an assistant lecturer at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, said the most worn, cheap and disposable mask, known as a surgical mask, could prevent, but not eliminate, the coronavirus. Even with perfect use, a virus or pathogen can be infected by these masks or pass through the eyes to the body.
This type of surgical mask is usually yellow or blue in color. Which can be firmly stuck in the ear through rubber. It is possible to cover the mouth, chin and nose. And on top of these masks is an iron strip, which easily covers the mouth and nose.
However, experts have given equal importance to the proper opening of such masks. It should be kept open while opening so that it does not add any dirt and can be opened at once.
