On 31 December 2019, the last day of the year 2019, the first case of Coronavirus was discovered in Wuhan, China. WHO proposed to call the disease “2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease”.
As you know China is the most populated country in the world and Wuhan is the most populated city of China with more than 11 million people. So, it is obviously not a good place of starting of the virus as it might spread all over the world faster because of the population.
On January 23, Wuhan, China was isolated to prevent further outbreak of the virus. All the public transports, airports, railways were shut down and checkups started on the roads to keep the infected peoples isolated to prevent further spreading of the virus.
Coronavirus Death Toll and Infections LIVE Numbers
The United States, Japan, Vietnam, and Germany also reported Coronavirus cases of people who have not visited China, but they contracted the virus from a person who had visited Wuhan, China. This is called human to human transmission and according to WHO, this is not good as it makes the spread of the virus faster.
On 30 January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a Global Public Health Emergency. And, on that day Coronavirus surpassed the number of confirmed cases of SARS (there were 8096 total confirmed cases of SARS). The first death occurred in the Philippines (outside China). It was a Chinese man 44-year-old from Wuhan who was admitted to the hospital on 25 January 2020.
What can you do?
Try to maintain as much as hygiene possible, until a successful cure is discovered. Try to avoid non-veg items. And also try to avoid contractions with a lot a people, until a cure is discovered.
These types of events are rare in our life and may not seem serious, but if these types of pandemic situations are not controlled then they have the potential to wipe out all the humans from the earth, in some cases all types of living organisms.
