World Health Organization official believe that Corona virus was transmitted from animals to humans. Residents of Wuhan city, china , use to drink bat’s soup , and it is thought/believed that Bat’s soup is the main cause of transmission of Corona Virus to humans.
Corona Virus is transmitted from effected person to a healthy person. Its symptoms are ;

2 . Cough
3 . Short breathing
Its symptoms can appear within 2 days to 14 days after exposure. When Corona virus effects on lungs, it is more dangerous and can kill the effected person within 48 hours. Up till now , no anti Corona vaccine is available in the whole world.

Corona Virus appeared in China and Chinese doctors are trying their best to find out its treatment and Anti Corona vaccine . They have discovered that Corona virus persist in the body for at least 2 weeks after the symptoms are cleared up. This situation is unexpected or it is against the previous experience of other viruses. Usually viruses of diseases totally disappear when symptoms are cleared up. This gives a possibility to be victims of Corona virus for second time. Although many patients of Corona Virus are discharged from the hospitals declaring as “safe” , in fact they are not safe for at least two weeks. They should be very careful and take all the precautionary steps for above period. There are some patients who were re- effected to Corona Virus . Studies are going on to find a comprehensive treatment of Corona Virus, but it will take some time.
It is revealed that Corona Virus has begun replacing again at a low level after virus treatment ended. Since these viruses are , say, “child”, they do not produce any symptoms. But risk is still there. They might transmit the virus to others.
We pray to Al-Mighty Allah to save all of us from such diseases.
