It also hit several celebrities and top political figures around the world.\r\n\r\nThe virus is a new member of the Coronaviruses group, which was never identified in humans. The viruses\u2019 family also includes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV), which cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.\r\n\r\nCoronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Humans and animals such as mammals and birds can be affected by the disease.\r\n\r\nThe name is derived from the Latin corona, meaning \u201ccrown\u201d or \u201chalo\u201d.\r\n\r\nOn February 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the official name for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus is Covid-19, taken from the words \u201ccorona\u201d, \u201cvirus\u201d and \u201cdisease\u201d.\r\n\r\nIn December 2019, an outbreak was reported in Wuhan, China. On 31 December 2019, the outbreak was traced to a novel strain of coronavirus, which was given the interim name 2019-nCoV by the World Health Organization (WHO), it was later renamed SARS-CoV-2 by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.\r\n\r\n<img class="wp-image-129901 size-full" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/06\/coronavrius-mortalit\u00e0-1200x900-1.jpg" alt="coronavirus" \/>\r\n\r\nOn March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus a <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/who-declares-novel-coronavirus-global-pandemic\/" target="_blank">global pandemic<\/a> as the new virus has rapidly spread to more than 800,000 people from Asia to the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.\r\n\r\nTransmission of viruses between humans happens when someone comes into contact with an infected person\u2019s secretions, such as droplets in a cough.\r\n\r\nCoronavirus can also be transmitted by coming into contact with something an infected person has touched and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.\r\n\r\nIt is known that older people appear to be more vulnerable to the effects of the emerging virus.\r\n\r\nThe virus caused complete paralysis in all activities and events with large gatherings worldwide due to concerns over the spread of the virus.\r\n\r\nThe global pandemic, like everyone around the globe, had infected many famous personalities who have gone public with their results, such as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau\u2019s wife Sophie, and the Universal Music chairman and CEO Lucian Graingem who was admitted into the hospital to be treated for the virus.\r\n\r\nPeople across the globe partake in self-isolation for 14 days as an effective precautionary measure to protect those around them and themselves from contracting COVID-19.\r\n\r\n<img src="https:\/\/i1.wp.com\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/07\/original-816a4fc06aec5f83f980cceb6eeb2f36-1024x683-1.jpg?resize=750%2C375&ssl=1" alt="UK Scientists Warn: Coronavirus Could Cause Wave of Brain Damage" \/>\r\n\r\nIn July, UK scientists warned of a potential wave of coronavirus-related <a href="https:\/\/www.healthline.com\/health\/brain-damage" target="_blank">brain damage<\/a>\u00a0as new data indicated that the virus may lead to serious neurological problems including inflammation, psychosis, and delirium.\r\n\r\nA study conducted at University College London ( UCL) listed 43 cases of coronavirus patients experiencing either temporary brain dysfunction, strokes, nerve damage, or other severe brain effects.\r\n\r\nThe report added the latest studies which highlighted that the disease can also affect the brain.\r\n\r\nMichael Zandi, from UCL\u2019s Institute of Neurology, who co-led the study, stated that whether we will see a large scale of brain damage linked to the pandemic remains to be seen.\r\n\r\nNeuroscientists and specialist brain doctors say the emerging evidence of the impact of coronavirus on the brain is troubling.\r\n\r\nThe study, published in the Brain journal, found that nine patients with inflammation of the brain were diagnosed with a rare disorder called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) that is more frequently seen in children and can be caused by viral infections.
