Coronavirus

At the end of December 2019, the World Health Organization was alerted to several cases of pneumonia in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China. This virus was identified as a novel Coronavirus (now called SARS-CoV-2). This organism belongs to a family of viruses, which includes SARS and MERS viruses.

By the end of January, it was reported that more than 7,000 people had been infected by the virus. WHO reports that China is the most heavily affected country. Outside of China, cases have also been reported in; Italy, Iran, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Philippines, Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, USA, Canada, France, Finland, Germany, UK and UAE. The severity of
COVID-19 infection is under scrutiny via the CDC and WHO and it was declared Pandemic Outbreak on March 11, 2020.

It has triggered worrying citizens to stay healthy and hygienic. We often hear the saying "prevention is better than cure", which we couldn’t emphasize more when it comes to airborne, viral and communicable diseases which are especially riskier for those who are young or very old. There are many ways to prevent you and people you care about from getting these deadly diseases.
