What is Corona Virus?
Coronavirus is a virus that is found in animals. Once transmitted from animals to humans, it is fairly easy to get transmitted between individual humans. The COVID-19 was found in Wuhan, China, in the meat market, and is said to be transmitted from a bat to a human. It is said to spread from person to person through droplets of sneeze or cough, or by touching something an infected person has touched and then putting your hands on your face, mouth, ears, eyes or nose.

The coronavirus that started in China, has now decided to take a world tour. Sadly, it is not welcome in most countries that have gone in a quarantine mode to minimize their contact with it. This decision was made only after the virus had already affected thousands of people, with a death rate of 2-4%.
Total cases and most affected countries:
The number of cases may also vary based on the discovery of cases. For example, the testing in some countries may be limited so the numbers are low. Some countries might also be at different stages on the pandemic, or might have a few cases but still not taking appropriate precautions to contain it.
Many countries across the globe are now on lockdown like the USA, Itali, India, etc to prevent the spread. The global economy has also taken a major hit due to the virus, and it might take a while to recover.
As an individual, if you are not in quarantine, be responsible and self quarantine yourself or at least take precautionary measures to wear asks, stay away from crowded places and wash your hands for 20 seconds so that you are not a carrier and are not infected.
