Coronavirus & Its Types

What Is a Coronavirus?

The name coronavirus originates from the Latin word crown, which means crown or radiance. Under an electron magnifying instrument, the picture of the infection is suggestive of a sun-based crown. 

It was first identified in the 1960s, but we do not know where they come from. They get their name from their crown-like shape. Sometimes, but not often, a coronavirus can infect both animals & humans.

As indicated by the WHO (World Health Organization), coronaviruses are a group of infections that cause sickness extending Coronavirus from the normal virus to progressively serious illnesses, e.g., MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). 

These infections were initially transmitted between individuals & creatures. SARS, e.g., was accepted to have been transmitted from civet felines to people while MERS went from a sort of camel to people. 

some known coronaviruses are flowing in creatures that have couldn't yet taint people. 

2019 novel coronavirus, recognized by Chinese experts on 7/01/2020 & named 2019-nCoV, is another strain that had not been recently distinguished in people. 

Little is thought about it, albeit human-to-human transmission has been affirmed.
Types of coronavirus 
A coronavirus is a type of common virus that causes an infection in the nose, sinuses, or upper throat.

Common types are:

  • 229E (alpha coronavirus)
  • NL63 (alpha coronavirus)
  • OC43 (beta coronavirus)
  • HKU1 (beta coronavirus)
Most coronaviruses are not dangerous these types are:

  • Mouse hepatitis virus
  • Transmissible gastroenteritis virus
  • Porcine epidemic Coronavirus diarrhea virus
  • Alphacoronavirus 1
  • Bulbul coronavirus HKU11
  • Murine coronavirus
  • Miniopterus bat coronavirus HKU8

Some types of coronavirus are dangerous these are:
  • MERS(Middle East respiratory syndrome)
  • SARS(severe acute respiratory syndrome)  & 
  • (2019-nCoV)2019 novel coronavirus
 (MERS) Middle East respiratory syndrome

It is also known as camel flu, is a viral respiratory infection caused by the MERS-coronavirus (MERS-CoV).

About 858 people have died from (MERS) Middle East respiratory syndrome, which first appeared in 2012 in Hijaz e muqaddus (Saudi Arabia) & then in other countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, & Europe.
 In April 2014, the first American was hospitalized for the Middle East respiratory syndrome(MERS), Middle East respiratory syndrome(MERS) in Indiana another case was reported in Florida. Both had just returned from Hijaz e muqaddus(Saudi Arabia). 
In May 2015, there was an outbreak of the Middle East respiratory syndrome(MERS) in Korea, which was the largest outbreak outside of the Arabian Peninsula. 

SARS(severe acute respiratory syndrome) 

 (SARS)Severe acute respiratory syndrome is a serious kind of pneumonia. Infection with the SARS virus causes acute respiratory distress (severe breathing difficulty) & sometimes death
 SARS first appeared in China in November 2002. Within a few months, in 2003, 774 people died from a (SARS) severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak. As of 2015, there were no further reports of cases of SARS.

(2019-nCoV)2019 novel coronavirus
But in early January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) identified a new type: 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in  Wuhan China.
(2019-nCoV)2019 Novel Coronavirus is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness.
By late January 2020, there were three Coronavirus hundred confirmed cases in China & a death count that was still in the single digits but rising. And despite airport screenings, a traveler had brought the first case to the U.S.
