Summary about Coronavirus in English

Coronavirus is a group of large viruses that are responsible for normally causing disease in mammals and birds, however, in suitable and favorable conditions, the virus can affect and cause disease in humans as well. Due to the recent coronavirus attacks, several people have died as a result of this disease left untreated and unchecked in China. Since Pakistan is China’s neighbor, it is important to stay on alert for coronavirus and take safety precautions against it.


Coronavirus affects the throat, respiratory system and causes high fever. It is a highly contagious disease that spreads through air and any sort of physical contact with the diseased.


Coronavirus is found to originate from Wuhan, China. There are two causes scientists have concluded for coronavirus outbreak.


The first cause is the use of bats and other wild animals in food. Chinese cuisine has many dishes that are made using wild animals as meat. Chinese cuisine has dishes that have meat of dogs, bats, scorpions, octopuses, sharks, pigs etc. Coronavirus commonly attacks wild animals, and there is a high possibility that the virus evolved, mutated and modified itself to be transmitted from animals to humans and then cause disease in them.


The second cause of the coronavirus outbreak is a potential leak from a science research facility in Wuhan that was working on coronavirus. The leak led to the exposure of animals and humans inside and near the facility to the coronavirus that started showing symptoms. Since it is a contagious disease, it spreads very fast from the infected to the normal people.


Since the current coronavirus is a novel coronavirus that is still being investigated and researched, there isn't a lot doctors and scientists know about it yet, but they are working on it to the best of their abilities to understand this virus and how to counter it.


Symptoms of Coronavirus

The symptoms of coronavirus are similar to upper respiratory infection. This includes:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Coughing
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Sore throat
  • In severe cases, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome and even death.

These are symptoms that might seem like a common cold’s or due to the influenza virus. If you have these symptoms or any of them, it does not mean you definitely have the coronavirus. It may be some other infection similar to the coronavirus. Therefore, you should visit a doctor and consult him for a proper diagnosis.


Death from coronavirus is only due to negligence and lack of proper and timely treatment. Normally, if coronavirus is caught and diagnosed at an early stage and recommended with the proper medication, treatment plans and precautions, then it is healed properly.

Causes of Coronavirus

Coronavirus is a kind of common virus that causes common cold in humans. It can cause an infection in your nose, sinuses, or upper throat. Coronavirus spreads through infected people to others via air and other media. It started out in China as a result of eating bats and scientists suspect the second reason for coronavirus outbreak is a potential leak from a study working on coronavirus.

  1. Human coronavirus 229E 
  2. Human coronavirus OC43
  3. SARS-CoV
  4. Human coronavirus NL63 (HCoV-NL63, New Haven coronavirus)
