About COVID-19: How Does Coronavirus Spread?

Who doesn’t know about COVID-19? Ask a 5-year-old kid, and they’ll tell you it’s a dangerous virus. We haven’t seen such a deadly virus in 100 years. It’s a kind of virus that spreads from person to person through the droplets that a virus-infected person released by coughing, sneezing, and speaking. 

The planet itself has become an isolated world. Watch some YouTube videos of the world’s most busy street, and you’ll see the streets empty.  It looks like a world in a zombie movie.

How Did COVID-19 Spread Out? 

At the end of December 2019, WHO received a message from China officials about an unknown virus that was causing pneumonia-like illness in the city of Wuhan. 

They find out that the virus is a coronavirus similar to SERS 2002 and MERS 2012, but this virus was reacting differently and spreading faster than we could imagine. 

Mostly all kinds of animals have coronavirus in them, and sometimes, they can develop into forms that can infect humans. And that’s what happens with COVID-19. 

The virus spread from person to person through coughing, sneezing, and speaking. The virus droplets are heavy and can’t travel far. You can also get infected by touching droplets on the objects and then touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.  

How Did COVID-19 Spread Worldwide? 

Prior to the Wuhan lockdown, 90% of all the infections in china were undetected. These undetected cases were responsible for the spread of the virus all over the world. The detected case is only the tip of an iceberg, there a lot of undetected case that is spreading the virus as a wildfire. 

There are still peoples on the street who are infected by COVID-19, but they’re not diagnosing because they don’t see any symptoms.  

Most of the countries are under strict lockdown, and thus, the case is also decreasing. But for countries like the USA and South Africa, the cases are increasing every single day. There are over 1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the US.
