Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds that include diarrhea in cows and pigs, and upper respiratory disease in chickens. The virus mainly causes infection in your nose, sinuses, or upper throat. Most coronaviruses are not dangerous. Some types of them are serious, though.
The country is facing a “grave situation” Mr Xi Jinping told senior officials.
According to sources the coronavirus has killed at least 42 people and infected some 1,400 since its discovery in the city of Wuhan. Meanwhile, UK-based researchers have warned of a real possibility that China will not be able to contain the virus.
The virus is spreading from China to rest of the world, Dr. Om Srivastava, Infectious Disease specialist said that, “It is too early to say whether the novel coronavirus 2019 will become endemic in India.” There are no reported cases in India at this time, but there is a need of caution he said.
Precaution of infection:
There are currently no vaccines available to protect you against human coronavirus infection. You may be able to reduce your risk of infection by doing the following
1: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
2: Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
3: Avoid close contact with people who are sick
