Sud said, most coronaviruses are actually harmless. The virus usually causes mild to moderate upper respiratory tract disease, such as ordinary flu. Most people will be infected with this virus at some point in their lives.
However, he stressed, although the prospect is good for most people infected with this type of virus, the SARS and MERS viruses are more serious. The rate of his death is about 10 percent for people with SARS and 30 percent for those who have a MERS variant.
According to doctor Infectious Diseases of Texas, Nikhil Bhayani, who is not known today is a new type of this virus. They are testing to find out what type of virus this is and whether it is more similar to SARS or MERS. "I have a strong feeling that this will be a new virus," he explained. Quite alarming thing, the Korona virus is contagious easily and quickly. According to Sud, the most common human korona virus is contagious from an infected person to someone else through the air with cough and sneezing. Therefore, Sud suggests minimizing personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands, touching objects or surfaces with viruses on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands. "In the United States, people are usually infected with a corona human virus in the fall and winter season. However, infections can occur at any time of the year. Most people will be infected with one or more of the coronavirus in their lifetime, he added. Sud warned, the plague of SARS and MERS that had exploded in the early decade of 2000, also spread from animal contact to humans. At SARS most likely, the virus is dispersed from contact with bats, and on MERS the virus is dispersed from contact with camels. "Because the infectious organism is a virus, until now, we do not have special antiviral medication," said Sud.
