Learning about the Wuhan Coronavirus
What people are currently scared of is the Wuhan coronavirus.
Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses, which include a core of genetic
material that has protein spikes around the envelope. These spikes give the
virus a crown-like look which is why it's called the corona, which means
crown in Latin. There are subgroupings for these viruses. They are alpha,
beta, gamma, and delta. Some can cause gastrointestinal symptoms while
others cause respiratory. The symptoms for the respiratory disease can be
mild I most people, appearing like the common cold or to pneumonia.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), seven
types of coronaviruses can affect people, and this has been identified since
the mid-1960s. These are as follows.

cats, and bats. These are zoonotic coronaviruses, which means they can
jump from an animal to a person, which is called a spillover event. This
can happen due to an increase in contact between people and animals or it
can be caused by a virus evolving. Viruses can mutate and combine with
other viruses that allow for what was once an animal virus to infect
humans.
