Coronavirus is a virus that can cause severe respiratory illness, and even death. The coronavirus has been in the news lately because of an outbreak happening in the Middle East. In this post we will discuss what coronavirus is, how it spreads, and what you should do if you are exposed to coronaviruses.
The name coronavirus comes from a group of viruses called “coronoviruses”, which infect cells with a crown-like protein on their surface. Coronoviruses have been found all over the world, but most cases occur in animals like bats or cats. There are currently no human vaccines for coronaviuris available so prevention is key!
An example of a coronavirus is the SARS virus, which killed more than 800 people in 2003. It wasn’t until 2014 when researchers found that some strains were resistant to Merck’s experimental vaccine and other treatments. The current coronaviruses are very mild but still pose enough concern for scientists to research possible cures or vaccines against them…
A common disease caused by coronaviruses is diarrhea, fever, and body aches (the symptoms many experience during colds).
SARS was caused by one type of coronavirus because it only infects animals with no natural immunity.
Scientists discovered another kind called hCoV 2013 e(HCoV) has evolved resistance to the experimental vaccine that Merck was working on.
The coronavirus is not a major concern to most people, but it’s important for scientists to study them and find new treatments in case the virus mutates into something more dangerous.
A third type of coronavirus called hCoV 2015 G(HCoV) has been causing outbreaks of respiratory illness since late 2014
The term “coronaviruses” refers specifically to two groups: one which causes diarrhea and fever (like the common cold), and another which can cause severe pneumonia with a high mortality rate if left untreated. These viruses are generally fairly mild, at least when compared against other viral illnesses like SARS or Ebola; however there have been occasions when coronaviruses have become more dangerous.
The novel coronavirus that caused the 2014 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is an example of a virus that, in one case at least, mutated into something much worse than it was before.
In order to understand how these viruses cause illness and what can be done about them, scientists need to study specimens from patients who are infected with coronavirus so they can find treatments for different types of symptoms and conditions.
Blogging has always been my favorite hobby – I love writing blogs on topics related to engineering work or life travel stories like this year’s trip through Asia! But recently, just as blogging became easier thanks to platforms such as Blog ger and Medium, I started to notice the emergence of a new form: short-form blogging.
Sometimes called “micro-blogging” or “snackable content”, these bite-sized posts are made for social media platforms such as Twitter that limit text to 140 characters. This makes them perfect for sharing on Instagram Stories! For example, if you share a photo from your morning coffee break with friends on Instagram by adding an offhand thought about how much you love drinking iced coffee in summertime – this is snackable content at its best.
I want my blog post headlines to always be recognizable no matter where they’re shared online so I’m using hashtags like #coffeetime when writing tweets and taking pictures of
