Corona viruses are a group of viruses that are common among animals. Rarely, in some cases, scientists state that corona viruses are “zoonotic.” According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention; The expression “zoonotic” means that viruses can pass from animal to human.


Corona virus symptoms are: runny nose, cough, sore throat, possibly headache, fever that may last for a few days although not definitive. For those with a weakened immune system, the elderly and very young, the virus is likely to cause serious respiratory diseases such as pneumonia and bronchitis. It is known that there are some corona viruses that can be deadly and passed on to human, such as MERS and Sars.


Corona viruses can spread through human contact with animals. The transfer of the virus from person to person is by contact of a person with the secretion of an infected person. A Chinese virologist has published a study suggesting that the source of the virus is probably bats.


There is no specific treatment for corona viruses. Often the symptoms pass on their own. Physicians prescribe symptomatic treatment to relieve symptoms by prescribing pain medications and antipyretics.

Doctors say that the room humidifier and hot shower will be good for sore throat and cough. People who get sick need to drink plenty of fluids, rest and sleep as much as possible.
