First, Understand What is Corona virus?

Corona virus is nothing but a respiratory illness that spreads from person to person,also called COVID-19. The virus is called “SARs-CoV-2” and was first detected in Wuhan, China and since then has spread to 70 countries. The virus affects more to older people and those with preexisting medical problems like diabetes, heart diseases and blood pressure. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there have been over 3200 Corona virus-related deaths as of March 4, and Johns Hopkins University reports over 51,000 recoveries worldwide. On Tuesday, March 3, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director general of the WHO, said the fatality rate is around 3.4 percent. While this rate is significantly lower than two other recent coronavirus epidemics – SARS, identified in 2003, has a fatality rate or 10%;  MERS, identified in 2012, has a fatality rate of 35% – the transmission rate of COVID-19 is significantly higher, meaning more people are likely to get sick. The announced fatality rate also doesn’t take into account milder cases of those who don’t seek medical attention, so officials believe the rate will eventually turn out to be between 1 and 2 percent.
