What is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus is a family of viruses that causes disease in animals. Out of this family, seven have affected human beings. Most of them just cause cold-like symptoms but two categories, namely Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) are more severe.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, thus it is important to practice basic respiratory etiquette

The symptoms of this disease include mild to moderate respiratory illness. In an average person, it can be treated normally but with those underlying medical history, it becomes much more critical. As of now, there are approximately 400,000 positive cases around the world.
