What is Coronavirus?
Many people including me were still wondering about coronavirus that what exactly coronavirus is? Many experts have given their opinions about coronavirus till now, some say that its a fatal virus that will hugely damage the economy of the entire globe.
According to WHO (World Health Organisation), “Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiration Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV)”.
Whereas, some say that it’s not dangerous at all. Some also say that coronavirus is a common virus and it can be cured easily.
I was going through various contents for you guys, to write this blog post and also found out someone speaking, ” You might be having your previous cold because of coronavirus, it’s just because people are making it a big issue to make their businesses. And the death rate due to viruses is very common, it was the same previous year and is just highlighted this year to make people worried.”
How Corona Virus Originated?
Corona Virus basically originated in Wuhan, China. Wuhan is a small city in China. There is a wet market in Wuhan. The wet market is basically a Non-veg market, where lots of animals are killed and their meat is sold. Wuhan market also sold the meat of wild animals like monkey, bat, etc.
And when a human being eats the flesh of Wild animals, diseases of animals get transferred into humans.
And if I talk about the first 41 cases of coronavirus, 27 of them were of Wuhan’s wet market. And kept on spreading to whole china and as a result, in the whole world.
Coronavirus is a new type of virus, and there is a specialty of viruses and that is, they change their structure and multiply themselves to become stronger.
Before the Coronavirus, the Ebola virus originated in Africa and SARS in China itself. But the common thing in all of them was the wild animal’s meat.
What can be its causes?
Common Signs of Infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. – WHO.
In extreme cases, it can cause kidney failure, respiratory syndrome and even death.

- Covering mouth and nose While Sneezing
- Thoroughly cooking meat and eggs
- Avoid close contact with anyone who is having some symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

Are there rumors related to Coronavirus?
Sanitizers and Masks
Basically, people, these days are roaming in the market and in public areas with masks on their faces. But there is a very big misconception among people.
Let me tell you guys, keeping sanitizers always in your pocket or masks on your face might not be enough to protect you from this virus.
In fact, The normal surgical masks people are using these days to protect themselves are not useful at all.
And what about sanitizers? Well, Sanitizers should be used not only when you have fear of some virus, but you should also keep yourself clean and hygienic to keep your immune system strong.
Moreover, it is said by experts that coronavirus is likely to spread among aged people than to people of mid-age or young age.
And also to people who smoke cigarettes, are likely to get affected by coronavirus 10% faster as compared to people who don’t smoke.
This is Because people who smoke have lesser immunity. And this means to protect yourself from coronavirus you have to keep your immune system strong.
How a Smartphone can cause Coronavirus to spread?
Well, If I talk about a smartphone, most of us are addicted to it. We can’t keep it away even for 1 hour. And unknowingly, it is making us be unhygienic and unhealthy.
Let’s disclose the mystery now. A recent study has proven that a smartphone can have more germs and bacteria than a toilet seat…EEEuuuuuuu!!!!
Yes, I was shocked as well after reading that, and I threw my phone away for a while.
We try to keep our hands washed to keep germs at bay. But do we ever think of sanitizing our phone even once a day?
Recently research has shown that only 1% of Smartphone users sanitize their phones on a regular basis. And I am very much sure that most of us do not clean up their phones before going to bed.
Moreover, a smartphone has 25,127 bacteria per square inch. Whereas, toilet seats have 1,201 bacteria per square inch. Which makes a smartphone the dirtiest object in our surroundings.
Cell phones harbor more than three times the number of germs that dirty doorknobs do. Think about that next time you hold that thing up to your face!
How to sanitize your Smartphone properly?
- Keep washing your hands more often.
- Use some disposable wipes to clean up your phone.
- Clean your phone regularly and more often.
- You can also clean your phone with a gentle cloth so that it doesn’t scratch your device.
- You can also dip the cloth 60% water and 40% isopropyl and then wipe your phone with it.
You can use all these techniques to clean your device and keep germs and bacteria far away from you. And then you need not worry about any kind of bacteria in your surroundings. And be safe.
