How Dangerous Is The Corona Virus?

There was no Australia-wide alarm around the world that news of the outbreak of the Corona virus came from China.

At present, the virus has killed more than 26 deaths in Wuhan, an urban area in the Chinese province of Hubei, where the first case was reported in early January.

It should be noted that Wuhan has a population of over 11.8 million and Hubei province is the second largest province in the world by population. Therefore, to prevent its rapid spread, the Chinese government has to impose travel restrictions and about 20 million people in 10 cities in China are subject to these travel restrictions. The trip was immediately banned because, in just 2 days, new cases of Corona-infected cases were reported in northeastern and southern provinces of China, as well as two deaths in those provinces.

Yulong Jing, located northeast of China, about 2,000 km from Wuhan, near the Russian border, is estimated to spread rapidly and cause more deaths due to air travel. So in 10 cities in China at the moment, the transport is completely closed and even the airport has been closed due to security concerns.

As of Thursday, 830 cases were infected with the virus. According to a World Health Organization representative in China, controlling an outbreak is not so easy in cities with such a population. Although the Chinese government is doing its best to prevent it, it seems that the virus has already gone out of control.

What is the Corona Virus?

The corona virus is a common virus that normally affects mammals (animals that feed their babies) in different ways. Generally, diarrhea or breathing obstruction affects the digestion of cows, pigs, and birds.

Whereas in humans it only affects respiration. Breathlessness and severe sore throat or itching may be reported, but most types of the virus are not fatal, and in Asian and European countries almost every citizen lives with the virus.

The word corona is actually derived from the Egyptian language, which means the crown or halo of the head. The virus can be observed only with an electron microscope, in which the virus is shaped like a solar corona (an area around millions of miles around the sun where the plasma is spreading), hence the virus is called corona. ۔

Most varieties of the corona virus are not fatal, although no specific vaccine or drug is available to treat it, the mortality rate is still low and its spread is controlled by appropriate immunizations. ۔

But in early 2020, the World Health Organization discovered a new deadly variant of the virus in China called the Novel Corona virus or Envoy.

The number of patients suffering from the disease had risen to 300 in two weeks, yet the death toll was less than 10, but last week not only the outbreak intensified, but the deaths started to increase. Although the screening of airports worldwide is complete, the virus transmitted from China to the United States via China.

How does the Corona Virus Spread?

Usually the virus is transmitted to other people by shaking hands with the affected person or touching it, touching the body. In addition, in areas where the outbreak is an outbreak, there is a possibility of transmission of the virus by touching the wall, floor or furniture etc. in residential areas.

This is the reason why China is currently experiencing double anxiety as Wuhan and Hubei are densely populated areas, and it is not possible to move such a large number of places, but the possibility of disease and spread cannot be ruled out.

The virus has spread to the United States, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Thailand before, but the situation was not as severe in any area as China.

It is worth mentioning here that in China, the epidemic broke out when the moon calendar began and according to Chinese beliefs, it is the most important time of the year when living or working in other cities. Large numbers of people travel to their hometowns. Therefore, it is feared that its spread may intensify in the next few weeks.

How can the situation be handled?

Humans, in the cycle of blindly the following development and making their lives more comfortable, have infected not only the planet Earth but their lives as well, causing every day a new tragedy, disaster or disaster are becoming.

One of them is the spread of urban areas and the rapidly growing but out of our control population. Whether it is China or India or any other populous Asian country, cities are seldom planned to protect themselves from a calamity or a natural disaster, and that is why China is facing a serious situation right now. The outbreak in the over-populated province is now plaguing other provinces as well, and no one is guaranteed to suspend the city’s traffic or paralyze life for a few days. Which can be stopped?

Experts from all over the world are watching this situation and scientists say that every affected person is feared to spread the virus to 2 to 5 people in 1 to 4 or more densely populated areas, but these are only estimates. Ultimately, something can be said only when and at what time and in which area the virus has been infected.

But it is good to know that only 25% of the cases encountered so far were cirrhosis cases. Experts believe that the spread of the virus can be prevented by the only and only trafficking in cities.

Although it seems like a science-fiction film, entire cities with millions of millions of people are being blocked and people are being held in their homes, but in Wuhan and Hubei, China is facing a similar situation.

The Chinese government is hopeful that it will be able to control the spread of the virus.
