Symptoms of Novel Coronavirus infection

In this article, we will discuss various Symptoms of the Novel Coronavirus infection. So, let’s get started.

Coronaviruses are enveloped non-segmented positive-sense RNA viruses belonging to the family Coronaviridae and the order Nidovirales. Although most human coronavirus infections are mild, the epidemics of the two beta coronaviruses, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) have caused more than 10000 cumulative cases in the past two decades, with mortality rates of 10% for SARS-CoV and 37% for MERS-CoV. In December 2019, a series of pneumonia cases of unknown cause emerged in Wuhan, Hubel, China, with clinical presentation greatly resembling pneumonia. Deep sequencing analysis from lower respiratory tract samples indicated a novel coronavirus, which was named 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The following are the symptoms of coronavirus infection (2019-nCoV). Majority cases are being reported from China, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, and the USA.
