Once a man said,“ When the time comes, nature corrects itself naturally without any choice regardless of man’s action”. But, was it an accidental disaster or intentional man- made disaster! After SARS disease, a new type of coronavirus starts hitting the streets of China. Some people claim that it spreaded from contact with bats, some people claim that it got accidentally leaked from a Chinese laboratory which is to be used for biological warfare. But, Chinese defense minister of China tweeted on twitter that it was done by the U.S military as a biological warfare attack against China and the world. But, in China, where in almost all places there are highly advanced AI security cameras which can identify people very quickly. Nobody can officially prove where the source of this deadly virus has come from, there are only assumptions and we may or may not never know the source of the cause. Anyways, on the date of November 16th in the year 2002, an outbreak of (SARS) which stands for Severe Acute Respiratory syndrome (SARS) began in China’s Guangdong which infected more than 800 people and killed 34 people worldwide.
But, this new type of coronavirus which scientists named it as Covid-19 which the World Health Organization declared as an Pandemic because it has almost spread to every continent except Antarctica. This Covid-19 was initially caught attention from the victims of the City of Wuhan of Hubei Province of China. At the time of writing this blog, according to the world o meter live counts were 169,610 infected cases and 6,518 deaths and unfortunately there is ‘no’ vaccine officially right now to cure the coronavirus. But, the best possible outcome for this vaccine to be fully developed is expected to take 12 months to 18 months.
But, there is still hope for humanity because the doctors from around the world are trying to check by giving alternative medication to patients which surprisingly cured 77,782 people and fully recovered. Some doctors from China are using alternative traditional chinese methods to cure patients. Some doctors from India and China are using HIV ,H1N1, malaria medications which cured some of the infected people. Whereas, some doctors are using victims’ blood, who have recovered from their natural higher resistance and higher immunity power of recovered victims. Unfortunately we don’t know the exact number of people affected and how fast this virus can spread.
