The fear of the outbreak of the fast-communicating Coronavirus has made people take such extreme measures that we couldn’t have seen coming.
Coronavirus Or COVID-19
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that occurs due to the spread of the Coronavirus.
A coronavirus is a form of a genetic mutation which is likely to have been formed by the fusion of the genes of a bat and a snake. The disease has the ability to infect mammals, which includes human beings as well.
How Did It Originate?
The Coronavirus showed the earliest signs of spread in December last year. The place of its origin is in Wuhan, a city in China.
Although doctors and scientists are still debating about the exact source of its outbreak, it is most probably linked to a seafood market of Wuhan.
