CORONAVIRUS OR COVID-19?


You must have heard both words on TVs, newspapers, radio or social sites. But did you ever realize that these two words are different? No issue, we are going to tell you about these two terms.

 

Corona virus is a group of viruses that are responsible for the common cold, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) infections in humans. SARS was transmitted from civet cats to humans while MERS moved from a camel. First corona virus has been isolated in 1937. It has been found in birds. This virus was responsible for an infectious bronchitis virus which can cause devastate poultry stocks. Afterward, the first human corona virus (HCoV) has been encountered in 1960. It causes the common cold and found in the nose of people. This human corona virus which causes cold is divided in two terms: OC43 and 229E.

 

Corona means “halo” or “crown” in Latin language and the structure of Corona virus is like it surrounded by a solar corona; hence named Corona virus.

In 2019, an outbreak of a new virus has been reported which is closely monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC). This belongs to the SARS family and named SARS-CoV-2. This is responsible for the respiratory disease termed as Corona Virus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
