Coronavirus: Where did it come from, how did it spread, how terrible, what is the treatment?
Coronavirus has entered the human body from one animal and is constantly changing its genetic makeup as it spreads from one person to another – a mutation. So there are fears that the virus may become more dangerous in a few days.
But scientists are still trying to figure out the nature of the virus and how it can be prevented.
News of deadly viruses such as SARS or Ebola occasionally comes through the news. This coronavirus is the latest in it. But is it a today-there-tomorrow-no virus? Or is it much more dangerous than
What is a coronavirus and how does it spread?
Coronavirus is an infectious virus that has never spread to humans before.
Another name for the virus is 2019-NCOV. It is a type of coronavirus. There are many species of coronavirus, but only 6 of them can be transmitted to humans.
Scientists say the virus may already be ‘mutating’ inside human cells, changing its structure and multiplying – making it even more dangerous.
It could spread extremely quickly, and experts confirmed on Monday that the virus could spread from one person to another.
The virus infects the human lungs and is transmitted from one person to another through the respiratory tract. The virus is spread through sneezing and coughing, just like the common flu or cold.
Coronavirus was also a type of coronavirus that killed 800 people worldwide a decade ago in a virus called SARS (full name Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). More than 8,000 people were affected.
What are the symptoms of the affected person?
The main symptoms of coronavirus infection are difficulty breathing, fever, and cough.
But it can lead to organ failure, pneumonia, and death. Scientists say it takes about five days for the virus to show signs of infection once it enters the body. The first symptom is fever. After that dry cough appeared.
Shortness of breath occurs within a week and then some patients have to be hospitalized.
The question is how dangerous this virus is. Two percent of the victims have died so far, perhaps more deaths. There may have been other deaths that were not identified.
So it is not yet clear exactly how terrible this virus is.
Is there any treatment for this?
Since the virus is new, there is no vaccine yet, and there is no treatment that can prevent the disease.
So what is the way to escape from it?
The only way is to avoid contact with people who are already infected or carrying the virus.
Apart from that, doctors have advised washing your hands frequently, not to touch your nose and mouth with your hands, and wear a mask when you go out of the house.
Dr. University of Hong Kong. Gabriel Leung says in this health guideline, hands should always be kept clean, hands should be washed frequently. Do not rub your nose or face with your hands, wear a mask when you go out of the house.
“Wear a mask if you are sick, and even if you are not sick, wear a mask to avoid contact with others,” he said.
The good news is that China, 100 percent success in the corona vaccine test.
The world today is in the grip of the coronavirus epidemic. Lockdown is going on in one country after another, the wheel of the world economy has come to a standstill. At that time, China gave good news. Recently, Chinese researchers have achieved 100 percent success by applying a newly invented vaccine to the body of monkeys. Khabar DNA India. They say that they have got 100% success by applying a newly invented vaccine in the body of monkeys. The vaccine is called picovac. The vaccine was developed by Beijing-based Synovac Biotech. According to the scientists of the institute, the vaccine has been developed following the conventional anti-virus process. When it is applied to the body of any animal, antibodies are produced, which help to destroy the virus. According to the Times of India, Chinese researchers applied the newly invented Picovac vaccine to a group of monkeys of the Rhesus macaque species in early March. Three weeks later, the monkeys were exposed to the coronavirus. One week later, the monkeys that had been vaccinated were not infected with the coronavirus. And coronavirus is found in the lungs of monkeys that have not been vaccinated.
Some of them also have symptoms of pneumonia. After getting the results of this study in the middle of April, the scientists started the trial of Picovac in the human body. Virologists in the United Kingdom and the United States have conducted preliminary tests on the vaccine directly at the risk of rapid discovery. Although the experiments have not been 100 percent successful yet, Chinese scientists have reported a different success.
What is the way to survive the coronavirus epidemic?

Things to do to prevent Coronavirus
For the first time in the country, a patient infected with coronavirus has been identified. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called on the world to take a number of simple but effective precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and reduce its risk of infection.
The way Corona spreads
Covid-19 is a coronavirus that has spread worldwide, including in Bangladesh. The virus can spread from an infected person to a healthy person through sneezing or coughing.
When a healthy person sneezes or coughs given by a person infected with the corona through the breath or touch of the hand, the corona infection can spread to his body.
The source of the virus is a number of hospitals in China that identify a person as having corona if they have symptoms of sneezing or coughing for more than ten minutes. Also, if a person is already within six feet of an infected person, he or she is also placed at a higher risk of infection.
Premonitions can also spread from people who have not been seen
Many people with coronary heart disease may not have symptoms. The virus can also spread through these patients. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Infected patients may also be infected by saliva, saliva or cold sores on a school bench or bus seat. From there it can easily spread to others.
Ways of protection
Wash hands regularly
Wash your hands occasionally with clean, clear water. Then apply soap on the hands and rub the palms and surfaces of the hands to remove the foam. Clean between the fingers in the same way. Then wash your hands again with water.
When sneezing or coughing, cover your face with a tissue
Then put that tissue in the dustbin and clean your hands again. Never use your hands or elbows to prevent sneezing or coughing.
Wearing a face mask can provide little protection
The face mask may provide some protection against sneezing and coughing up the liquid source of the coronavirus. However, it is not possible to prevent the very fine particles of the virus. In addition, wearing a mask keeps the eyes open. Evidence of the virus has already been found in the eyes of several people.
Seek medical attention as soon as you see Lakshman
If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, consult your doctor immediately. Tell him where you recently traveled.
Animal market avoidance
Avoid live animal markets in areas infected with the virus and refrain from touching animals.
Avoid raw foods
If you return from the affected area, keep yourself ‘isolated’ from public gatherings for 14 days. This means that other public gatherings, starting from the workplace, should be avoided at this time.
Tips for eating simple, affordable, and healthy foods during a coronavirus outbreak.
Outbreaks of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are reviving the lives of families around the world. With schools and childcare centers closed, many parents spend most of the day at home taking care of childcare, full-time work, and other competing responsibilities. “What’s for dinner?” There could be one more daily challenge.
Tightening things up, panic purchases, and disruptions to the food supply system mean some foods are hard to find right now. And for many, unemployment and lost income are making food shopping an additional financial challenge.
While many parents are looking for intelligently prepared foods and processed foods as a quick and inexpensive way to feed the family, there are convenient, affordable, and healthy alternatives. Here are five ways to feed your kids with a variety of and nutritious foods that will support their growth and development while building healthy eating habits.
1. Make arrangements to eat fruits and vegetables.
Buying, storing, and cooking fresh vegetables in the lockdown can be a challenge, especially when parents are advised to limit travel outside the home. But wherever possible, it is important to ensure that children are getting plenty of fruits and vegetables in their diet.
Whenever possible it is possible to retain fresh produce. As well as eating fresh, fruits and vegetables can be frozen where possible and retain most of their nutrients and flavor. Using fresh vegetables to cook large batches of soup, stew, or other dishes will make them last longer and provide food alternatives for a few days. These can be frozen where possible and then quickly reheated.
2. Make a stock of healthy snacks.
Kids often need to eat a snack during the day to keep them going. Instead of giving kids a sweet or salty snack, choose healthier options like nuts, cheese, yogurt (not much to like), chopped or dried fruit, boiled eggs, or locally available healthy alternatives. These foods help build nutritious, more filling, and healthier diets that last a lifetime.
3. Limit highly processed foods.While using fresh products may not always be possible, try to limit the amount of highly processed foods in your shopping basket. Ready-to-eat foods, packaged snacks, and sweets often contain high amounts of saturated fat, sugar, and salt. If you purchase processed foods, check the label, and try to choose healthier alternatives that are low in these ingredients. Try to avoid sugary drinks and drink plenty of water instead. Adding lemon, lime, cucumber, or berry fruits or vegetables to the water is a great way to add extra flavor.
4. Make cooking and eating fun and meaningful part of your family routine.
Cooking and eating together is a great way to create healthy routines, strengthen family ties, and have fun. Wherever you can, get your kids involved in making meals – younger kids can help wash or pick out food items while older kids can help with more complex tasks and set the table.
Try as much as possible to stick to fixed meal times as a family Try such structures and routines help reduce anxiety for children in these stressful situations.
5. Switch to healthy dried or canned alternatives when the fresh yield is not available.
Fresh produce is almost always the best option, but when it is not available there are plenty of healthier alternatives that are easier to store and prepare.
Coconut beans and lentils, which provide plenty of nutrients, can be stored for months or even years and can be included in the diet in a variety of ways. Canned oily fish such as sardines, mackerel, and salmon are rich in protein, omega 3 fatty acids, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. These can be used cold in sandwiches, salads, or pasta dishes or cooked as part of a warm meal.
