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. The name coronavirus 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 new 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\nOn March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO)\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/www.cnbc.com\/2020\/03\/11\/who-declares-the-coronavirus-outbreak-a-global-pandemic.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">declared<\/a>\u00a0coronavirus a global pandemic 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\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.
