Why is Coronavirus Such a Big Deal? We all are aware of covid19 and the harmful virus known as coronavirus. For last few months, all media, TV channels, newspaper, professionals and politicians, in fact everyone who is concerned is talking about this new variant coronavirus.
Why is Coronavirus Such a Big Deal?
No one right now in this world is unaware of covid19. But Why is Coronavirus Such a Big Deal? Before coronavirus there were also many more bacterial and viral infectious diseases that have an impact on people’s life and it also killed many people throughout the world then why coronavirus is consider as a big deal!
Because influenza is so common, people figure it’s no big deal. It’s like driving a car. People will die, but not me because I’m a good driver. I’m in good health. It’s hard to imagine a day when people will be as nonchalant about getting their COVID-19 vaccine as they are about getting their flu shot, but it is one possible future reality, experts say.
- Adjusting to strict guidelines:
Why is Coronavirus Such a Big Deal? The virus spreading the disease causes new surges in infections across the world. All the people have been adjusting to strict guidelines, canceling activities, and in some areas following mandates to stay home on and off for almost a year. Now vaccines to prevent COVID-19 are bringing hope, and people who are getting vaccinated are starting to think about when they can go back to normal. Meanwhile experts are still tracking the emergence of virus variants that could pose new threats. As it is now being considered that covid19 is starting its third layer.
- How actually coronavirus is formed? and Why is Coronavirus Such a Big Deal?
Wuhan, China. By January 2020, clusters of cases of a mysterious pneumonia were being reported in Wuhan, and in the following weeks person-to-person spread of the virus was reported around the world. In early March of 2020’s year, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic a disease outbreak occurring over a wide geographic area and affecting an exceptionally high proportion of the population. Viruses are known to change constantly, and by the end of 2020, multiple COVID-19 variants were emerging. Scientists are working to learn more about these variants and their spread, and how they could affect the severity of illness in people who get the virus as well as the effectiveness of the available vaccines.
Scientists and public health officials also are working as quickly as possible to find more answers to key questions about how the disease affects the body and why some cases are more severe than others, and identify the best treatments for COVID-19.
But this is a complete mystery that what type of disease or virus it is and how can it be cure. Still no complete cure formula has been developed. There are vaccines to make your immune system strong to fight against coronavirus variants.
- What we know about COVID-19 has changed rapidly:
The number of people infected by the disease continues to change every day. While the impact of the disease varies by location, there are more than 130.4 million confirmed cases of people with COVID-19 around the globe and more than 2.8 million people have died from the disease, according to the WHO. While some news sources report different numbers, the WHO provides official counts of confirmed cases once a day.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides a rough picture of the outbreak in the U.S. here, currently putting the total confirmed and probable cases at more than 30.4 million and estimating more than 553,600 deaths. (If there are any discrepancies, data provided by state public health departments should be considered the most up to date, according to the agency). The CDC also reports that 165 million vaccines have been administered in the U.S.
The term coronavirus includes a family of seven known viruses that cause respiratory tract illnesses that range from the common cold to such potentially deadly illnesses as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which killed almost 800 people during an epidemic that occurred in 2002 and 2003. COVID-19 is the first pandemic known to be caused by the emergence of a new coronavirus novel influenza viruses caused four pandemics in the last century, which is why the response to the new disease is being adapted from existing guidance developed in anticipation of an influenza pandemic.
- Coronavirus can lead to death:
According to the CDC, reported COVID-19 illnesses have ranged from mild with no reported symptoms in some cases to severe to the point of requiring hospitalization, intensive care or a ventilator. In some cases, COVID-19 illnesses can lead to death. While people of all ages can be infected, the risk for complications increases with age. So people in their 50s, for instance, are at higher risk for severe illness than those in their 40s, and people ages 85 and older.

Be aware of the information and resources that are available to you
Because knowledge about the new virus is evolving rapidly, you can expect information and recommendations to change frequently. Threats like COVID-19 can lead to the circulation of misinformation, so it’s important to trust information only from reputable health organizations and sources such as the CDC and the WHO. “The public health infrastructure in the all over the world is a critical resource for leading the federal, state, and local response,” a report says.
- Social and emotional hardship:
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has emerged as a devastating challenge and it has shaken the global economic, social, and healthcare systems. We do not know when it will be ended, how many people will be infected, and how many lives will be claimed by the pandemic. The pandemic has also placed root in Pakistan. The first case of COVID-19 was reported in Pakistan on 26 February 2020. As of today, COVID-19 cases in Pakistan have already reached about 282, 000 (these figures are constantly changing) and that has also claimed over 6000 deaths. Since then the government of Pakistan have taken various initiatives at different tiers of the government.
The government introduced lockdown across the country in early March, 2020. Self-quarantine and social distancing are the only available remedies to limit the spread of COVID-19. There are no options left for governments but to impose lockdown which is observed almost in every country around the World. However, these lockdown, quarantine and self-isolation entailed mental health challenges.
The mental health sufferings due to COVID-19 are widely observed. This extensive lockdown is creating panic, fear, sense of insecurity, and stress in societies. With the advent of COVID-19 in Pakistan, people staying at home in quarantine and self-isolation are under physical and psychological pressure. Moreover, many people have lost their jobs and they are seriously in tense conditions.
Why is every case of corona infection, quarantine, hospitalization, or death being reported with such fanfare? Is it necessary? Why is Coronavirus Such a Big Deal? We do not think so. This minute-by-minute reporting has caused immense distress and panic to a vast majority of the population, rich or poor. This should have been quietly handled through efficient management and necessary augmentation of the healthcare system. This is not the time for optics, dramatic announcements, bragging or taking credits. This is not the time to do ‘research’. It is time for action. Action here and now is ‘research’. Be sensible. We hope this whole world get Covid free soon!
