{COVID-19 Coronavirus: A pandemic }WHO (World Health Organisation ) define Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).

COVID-19 Coronavirus ,a pandemic was discovered in 2019. Basically, this virus revolves among animals. Bats are considered as natural hosts of these viruses. Generally elderly people and those with underlying health are considered to be more at risk of developing severe symptoms and are more prone to get affected by this virus.

Patients are being provided “supportive care” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If you are feeling ill with COVID-19 symptoms you must consult  healthcare services. It is recommended to wash your  hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean hands with alcohol-based solution. Moreover stay 1 meter or more away from people infected with COVID-19  and who are showing symptoms for the same, to reduce the risk of infection.
