Then, what exactly is the corona virus and where does it come from?

A Chinese government report states, the corona virus began to plague in Wuhan, China, last December. State officials say the corona virus may originate from wild animals sold at the Huanan Seafood Market located in downtown Wuhan.

Moreover, a number of initial sufferers who contracted the Novel 201 Corona virus (2019-nCoV) were employees of the food market.

"The authorities believe the virus may have originated from wild animals on the seafood market even though the exact source has not yet been determined." said Dr. Gao Fu, director of the Chinese disease control and prevention center, as reported by The Straits Times on Thursday (1/23/2020).

Chinese food market and media vendors report, the Huanan Seafood Market sells a variety of unique foods. Ranging from cubs, live foxes, crocodiles, giant salamanders, snakes, mice, peacocks, porcupines, camel meat to weasels.

The various animals sold on the market are species related to the previous pandemic, the Server Acute Resporatory Syndrome (SARS).

According to researchers, the corona virus is a virus that often infects animals. However, the virus can gradually evolve and spread to humans. Corona virus is also said to be similar to SARS which became epidemic throughout the world in 2002-2003.

The SARS virus first appeared in China in November 2002. In July 2003 8,000 cases of this virus were found and 774 people died. This outbreak has spread to other countries in North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

However, according to Professor of infectious diseases and global health at the University of Oxford, Peter Horby, corona viruses are lighter than SARS. The virus takes a long time to develop from the initial symptoms.

What are the symptoms caused by the corona virus?

Corona virus can make people sick upper respiratory tract with mild to moderate levels, similar to the common cold. Other symptoms of the corona virus include colds, coughs, sore throat, headaches and fever. All of that can last for several days.

For those who have a weak immune system, such as the elderly and children, there is a possibility that the virus can cause more serious respiratory diseases such as pneumonia or bronchitis. In fact, it can spread into pneumonia and result in death if not treated immediately.

However, the World Health Organization (World Health Organization / WHO), said the virus has not been an emergency. So it does not need to be categorized as a global emergency, like the SARS virus.
