A Precursor on Pandemic Corona Virus: An Infectious Disease
Keywords:Pandemic, corona virus, infectious diseases, respiratory syndrome, treatment, outbreak control, global readiness
This paper is a study on Corona virus and its effects on human beings in particular and how it has become a global pandemic. The reason for the world’s pandemic, Corona virus is an RNA virus found extensively in mammals including humans. It is found that the most human corona virus infections cause from mild symptoms to severe respiratory problems and lead to death. In the recent past the world has faced two great epidemics caused by two different beta-corona viruses and they were named as SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus) and (MERS-CoV Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus). Despite these viruses had high infectivity, had less mortality rate. As it is known, these types of viruses, in general, cause a mild illness and considerably affect children and young adults. As the whole world is facing a pandemic situation today, carrying out research on finding vaccine to kill the virus is a need of the time. It is obvious that to understand the fighting measurements, in other words readiness of the nation in handling the situation, the local risk assessments are considered to be one of the key factors in comprehending COVID-19. It is pathetic to know that this virus spreads rapidly everywhere and considering this fast outbreak, the global wide readiness, building capacity and mutual collaborations among countries are the most important needs in order to control the outbreak.
