FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) about Coronavirus:
Coronavirus is a type of virus that impacts a patient’s upper respiratory system. Public health officials and the Centers for disease control name the strain detected in Wuhan, China as “2019-nCoV.” According to the CDC, coronaviruses are “a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS, SARS, and now with 2019-nCoV.”
A coronavirus is a special virus that spreads within a certain species of animal, which can cause significant respiratory trouble and incredibly harmful results within the same species. nCoV-2019 is an especially rare case of a coronavirus spreading from a foreign animal species to humans.
Symptoms of the cornoavirus begin as any onset acute illness with coughing, sneezing, sinus pain, and congestion. However, patients with the virus soon develop extreme difficulty breathing and fatal respiratory symptoms.
