Coronavirus paragraph 250 words (for class 6,7,8)
Novel coronavirus (CoV) is a new strain of coronavirus. The disease caused by the novel coronavirus was first identified in Wuhan, China, whose name is Coronavirus Disease 2019. (COVlD-19) CO is Corona, ‘VI’ for virus and ‘D’ for disease. Covid-19 virus is a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and new viruses belonging to the same family of viruses as some common colds and coughs. Like other respiratory illnesses, it can cause a number of symptoms, including runny nose, sore throat, cough and fever.It can be more serious for some people and can lead to pneumonia or shortness of breath and organ failure. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people and people with pre-existing medical conditions seem to be at greater risk of becoming seriously ill with the virus. While wearing a medical mask can help limit the spread of some diseases, including COVID-19, it will not stop the infection alone. Washing hands and avoiding contact with potentially infected people is the best way to reduce the risk of infection. It is possible for people of any age to be infected with the virus, but it is important to note that no deaths have been reported in children infected with the Covid-19 virus. The virus is rarely fatal, mainly in older people with pre-existing medical conditions. The virus is transmitted through direct contact with an infected person’s respiratory tract (produced by coughing and sneezing), and by touching surfaces contaminated with the virus. The Covid-19 virus may survive on the surface for several hours, but a common disinfectant can kill it.
