The Story of Corona where it begins

Updated: Nov 28, 2020


Coronaviruses were first discovered in 1930 when an acute respiratory caused by chickens through infection which was caused by the bronchitis virus.

These chickens 90%mortality rate was 40% to 90% which they kept isolated and cultivated for six years, which can cause infectious bronchitis disease. Some of the other two diseases that can be caused by coronavirus are mouse and hen.

The Coronavirus was derived from the Latin word ‘Corona’ which means crown or ‘wealth’ and ‘virus’ which means ‘garland’ or wealth.

The name was coined by June Almeida and David Tyrrell

This was discovered and studied and by June Almeida and David Tyrrel by humans of coronavirus. In 1968 the new virus of humans had come into existence.

June Almeida first identified the coronavirus in 1964

About Coronavirus and what it is

It is a group of the virus which is related to diseases caused by mammals and birds. In humans, these viruses can be caused by respiratory infections that can cause by a mild illness such as a common cold, etc.

Other symptoms of the coronavirus that vary from chickens are cows, and pigs which can cause diarrhea. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs for the prevention of the treatment of a human in coronavirus infections.

It is the family of viruses that can cause disease in animals which the virus has been jumped to humans that can cause mild symptoms like cough, cold, fever. Nowadays this virus has been infected ill seriously ill about 8,000 people and killed 800 people. The other two coronaviruses have mild infections so that people may be carrying the symptoms get difficult to control.

Structure of CoronaVirus

Coronaviruses are very large and rough particles with surface projections. The average diameter of the viruses consists of 80nm, and spikes are about 20nm. These viruses appear in distinct pairs of electron shells which are relatively opaque in the beam which scans the virus particle.

It also consists of the lipid layer of the membrane that enveloped the structural protein anchored.

How did the outbreak start?

These all had begun recently in Wuhan China, in December 2019 which had spread these from the entire globe. Lacks of thousands of people have been suffered and lost their lives due to this deadly virus.

Dead animals

Inside Wuhan Market were dead and live animals where sold

The main source of coronavirus was started in china’ Wuhan Wet Market’ where they have sold live and dead animals include fish and meat. This is a very risky market in which the virus spreads and jumps very easily from animals to humans such as rabies, Ebola, HIV, etc.

The main source of spreading the virus disease is bats. These diseases came from chickens from that other live animals will spread and sold in these are affected.

Is the coronavirus airborne?

Exactly we could not say that it is airborne, but it spreads from one person to another person. The virus spreads in the atmosphere for a longer period of time can be spread through tiny droplets that can be existed through air-conditioned and ventilation of pipes.

These can be spread through the contacts from one person to another person by a spreading time of 15 min of time with 2mm of an infected person.

How serious is the disease

These diseases can be cured by 14% of the virus which includes pneumonia shortness of breath. Some of the 5% of the severe patients are critical with multiple organs.

Who is at risk for coronavirus?

This deadly disease will affect people of all ages. Especially the elder people and kids who get affected very fast compared to the middle ages of the people. So care and precautions are necessary which takes place.

Some of the diseases which affect them are obesity, asthma diabetes, and heart disease.

Infection in humans

The disease that will affect and spread through coronavirus is a common cold in which the bacteria will kill about 30% and also harmless such as cold, fever, and sour throat. This virus was discovered in 2003 with the virus affecting bronchitis and phenomena which cause severe acute respiratory syndrome which causes the upper and lowers respiratory tract system.

There are six different types of human coronaviruses, in which one species are subdivided into two different types and seven other types of virus that are unknown to each other.

The Four human coronaviruses produce symptoms that are generally mild:

Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43), β-CoV

Human corona virus HKU1 (HCoV-HKU1), β-CoV

Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E), α-CoV

Human coronavirus NL63 (HCoV-NL63), α-CoV

Two of the human coronaviruses produce symptoms that are potentially severe:

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), β-CoV

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), β-CoV

Infection on Animals

The infection on animals discovered in 1930 in the search of veterinary and pathological conditions. Some of the animals include swine, cattle, horses, camels, cats, dogs, rodents, birds, and bats that will infect those animals during the effect.

When a virus gets affected through animals it jumps to humans when they are attached.

First, it infects animals then it spreads to humans

How coronavirus came in Wuhan lab

In December 2019 an unknown virus called coronavirus which has been adapted in Wuhan where 96 percent of the different virus which has been adapted in the South West of China.

This virus had been spread through global worldwide which is uncontrollable and according to the reports, they led a team in which Shi Zhengli and he was the first to identify that the virus had existed.

Wuhan lab where experiments are done where 1,200 viruses have been stored

In February they have come to the conclusion that 76.2% of viruses exist in the lab in which 96% of them had been spread through bats.

Wuhan lab had three live bats of coronavirus

Some of the top leaders have affected the deadly coronavirus

These Labs have been done by a lot of researchers about controlling the spread of the virus from bats from natural reservoirs to human resources.
