Early in the year 1960 the Corona-virus had been discovered and the coronavirus gets its name from a distinctive corona or ‘crown’ of sugary-proteins that projects from the envelope surrounding the particle. Encoding the virus’s make-up is the longest genome of any RNA-based virus – a single strand of nucleic acid roughly 26,000 to 32,000 bases long.
This might seem alot but to break it down, it seriously means that there’s trouble wherever it’s been mentioned but somehow, this virus was able to be contained and kept away for over many decades only for it to break out in the city of Wuhan, China.
At the time of writing, numbers of infected are still on the rise, with a mortality rate of around 1 percent.
Snakes were originally suspected as a potential source for the outbreak, though other experts have deemed this unlikely and proposed bats instead. As of February 2020, the search for the animal origin of COVID-19 is ongoing.
It’s highly alarming that up till date, scientist around the world are yet to find it’s exact source and cause. The virus has become a pandemic, causing more than 8,000 infections of an influenza-like disease in 26 countries with close to 800 deaths as at now, the death toll is way higher than expected.
Currently alot of things in the world are being put to hold or suspended if I should say. The world of sports has been affected as reports show that some players have been tested positive of the virus including Arsenal club manager Mikel Arteta.
So many world leaders now operate from their homes and it’s not getting any better. Families are being separated, loved ones are lost to isolation and it’s like the world is suffering from a silent world war 3 effect.
Questions arising are;
Where did this come from?
Why is it still managing to spread despite the so much efforts put in to contain this issue?
How can something as dangerous as this be in existence since only to break out to destroy the world now?
What is happening?
Some underground secrets say the US army are responsible for the epidemic, China points accusing fingers towards US. it seems there’s a lot going on but we can only try to live and hope that whatever it maybe, let it pass away.
Unlike the Ebola crisis, Lassa fever and other viruses, this has totally affected almost every part of the world. We at Gbedustreet send our heart felt condolences to everyone affected, directly and indirectly.
