The year 2019 has been a deadly life threatening year. Nobody would have imagined that we would have been hit with a disease which would have an impact on a global scale. The deadly disease is known as novel coronavirus also known as COVID- 19 where CO stands for corona and VI stands for virus and D stands for disease.

This disease is caused by a novel strain of virus called the COVID-19 virus. The outbreak of this disease was in Wuhan city of China. This disease changed from an epidemic to a ‘pandemic’ because of its spread occurring in wide geographical regions and affecting an exceptionally larger proportion of the population.

This virus mainly affects humans and the virus is supposedly carried by bats and snakes. The main symptoms of this disease is almost like having a common cold and flu but even deadlier.

The virus gets worse with time and has other symptoms like fatigue, diarrhoea, chest pain, breathing problems, confusion etc that also accompany it.

This disease has brought about so much fear among the masses as it spreads like wildfire affecting millions along the way. This virus is very dangerous as we are unable to see it around us. Anybody next to us could be having the virus and we wouldn't even have a clue about it.

This disease is transmitted through the droplets of nasal discharge and saliva of the infected person. If you are standing too close to the infected person and these droplets are showered on you, the virus finds its way into your nose and from there to your respiratory tract.

The virus can also spread if the individual touches objects that were previously sprayed on by the infected person. It tends to stay on metal objects for a long time and if anybody touches those objects and later on touches their eyes or nose they can be infected. This virus is very contagious and we should be very careful.

The reason why this disease has become fearful among the masses as it mainly attacks the respiratory tract. Those with breathing problems like ASthma, bronchitis etc should be careful around this disease as they will be easily susceptible to catching this flu.

The main symptoms to look out for are dry cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, high fever, tiredness, aches, and pains. Since these symptoms are so similar to the common cold it makes everyone anxious.

All over the world millions of people are dying. This virus attacks the immune system of a person. The symptoms manifest so quickly, that if it is not taken care of properly it will prove to be fatal.

One must take the necessary precautions to prevent this from spreading. Some of the necessary precautions are : wearing masks at all times. These masks are no ordinary masks but the ones that are approved by the government. These masks have three layers of material with a filtration material configured in the middle.

These masks are approved by WHO (World Health Organisation). Apart from that we must keep sanitizing our hands and fingers. When we sanitize we instantly kill the germs that are present on our hands which prevent it from entering our eyes or nose.

Other than that we must also maintain social distance. This is hardly maintained as people tend to forget at times the seriousness of this issue.

Eat immune-booster food items like citrus fruits, nuts, jaggery and Consult the doctor immediately if you feel the symptoms are some other precautionary measure we must adhere to.

Conclusion: So prevention is way better than cure. We can eradicate it if we just stay patient and take the necessary precautions. Why should innocent lives be at risk due to our negligence? It is the sole responsibility of the entire world to keep safe distance until this disease is permanently eradicated.
