The most deadly disease of the Decade : Corona Virus!!!! And its effects on the World.

Recently, an outbreak of the Wuhan corona virus in China has caused global concern. It came from a seafood and meat market in Wuhan, China, in December. It has since spread to other countries, including the United States. The market sold live and recently killed animals, which is where the virus originated.Six cities in China have been quarantined because of the corona virus. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a global health emergency over a new corona virus that has killed at least 636 people following an outbreak in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.More than 31,000 cases have been reported worldwide, most of them in China's Hubei province. A man from Wuhan died in the Philippines on February 2 and Hong Kong reported its first death on February 4.


  • What is Coronavirus?

  • A coronavirus is a virus that is found in live animals and spread through slight contact.. Sometimes these viruses can be transmitted from animals to humans,as the humans eat them alive without proper cooking. Officials do not know what animal caused the Wuhan coronavirus,but the most linked animals are Bats and pangolins although the market it is linked to also sold wild animals, like snakes and crocodiles. In addition to the Wuhan coronavirus, other human coronaviruses have included:

    • The MERS virus, or Middle East respiratory syndrome.This is more deadly than Wuhan coronavirus.
    • The SARS virus, or severe acute respiratory syndrome, which first occurred in the Guangdong province in southern China. Its is the deadliest of all the coronavirus.

    It is believed that both MERS and SARS are more serious than the Wuhan coronavirus.

  • Symptoms:

  • Coronaviruses can give rise to a variety of symptoms in different animals but the most affected are the humans. Most of the time infections can be compared to a bad cold, causing mild to moderate upper respiratory problems such as a runny nose and sore throat.

    There are a handful of lethal exceptions, which have had a devastating impact on livestock and human health around the globe.

    Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV):

    Wuhan coronavirus was first identified in the Chinese city of Wuhan in 2019. At the time of writing, numbers of infected are still on the rise, with a number of deaths having been reported. Most daangerous thing is that there is no cure available till now.

    Bats and Panogalins  have been suspected as a potential source for the outbreak, though other experts currently consider this as unlikely.

    Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV):

    SARS was first recognised as a distinct strain of coronavirus in 2003. The source of the virus has never been clear, though the first human infections can be traced back to the Chinese province of Guangdong in 2002. The virus then became a pandemic, causing more than 8,000 infections of an influenza-like disease in 26 countries with close to 800 deaths. This disease was cured and had a vaccine invented.

    Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS-CoV):

    MERS was first identified in Saudi Arabia in 2012 in people displaying symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath and occasionally gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhoea. An animal source for the virus has never been officially confirmed, though evidence points to dromedary camels as a potential reservoir of infection. This virus has a vaccine.

  • Statistics of the Countries Effected and People killed:

  • Many Countries are being effected by the virus :

    China is the most effected Country from where the Virus originated:
  • Effect of Virus on China Economy:

    1. Stock markets around the world are lower than they were two weeks ago. China's market fell 8% after the spread epidemic
    2. China is the largest manufacturer and imports more crude oil then any other country. As a result, decrease in crude oil demand by China forced the Oil prices to decrease, As a result, the Oil producing countries are pondering to decrease production.
    3.  Many auto industry manufacturers such as Hyundai and General motors have manufacturing plants there specially in Wuhan. The plants as been closed. The production has been greatly affected.
    4. The already sluggish growth rate of China economy would be terribly effected by this virus if the disease is not controlled. The sluggish growth rate is attributed to trade war and lack of demand for Chinese goods.
    5. Similarly those countries which are greatly involved with China in terms of trade and goods are deeply affected. Most of these countries are either under developed or developing.
    6. China has the largest number of tourist and they greatly contribute to the world tourism country. The disease has caused to place restriction on the Chinese people as a  tourism industry is greatly damaged
    7. Many international food chains such as Starbucks has temporarily closed their operation in China. This directly affects the workers and indirectly these food chains
    8. If the epidemic is not controlled, the damages would be far then we think. There could a drought even .
