Coronaviruses are mutual throughout the globe and infect both humans and animals. The effects of coronaviruses range from mild to moderate with others like the severe acute respiratory system causing severe effects. The paper will analyze coronaviruses presenting the effects and approaches the community can adopt in overcoming these conditions.
The coronavirus that the paper will discuss is the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus. Coronaviruses indicate a large family of human and animal viruses that lead to a range of illnesses. The Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus is caused by a virus and was first discovered in 2012 in Saudi Arabia. The disease assumed the word Middle East following its origin but has since spread to various regions. The coronavirus causes severe acute respiratory disease that result in death following the shortness of breath (CDC, 2015). Ever since the discovery in Saudi Arabia, the coronavirus has been reported in some other countries. These countries include Qatar in 2012, Jordan in 2012, United Kingdom in 2013, France in May 2013, United States in April 2014, South Korea in May 2015, China in 2015, and Lebanon (McIntosh, 2015).
The primary source that triggered the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus is yet to be established. The precise routes and modes of transmission from human to human have not been identified. However, there is clear evidence that the virus gets passed from one person to another. The Ministry of Health of Saudi Arabia (2014) recommends standard precautions for management of the transmission of the Middle East respiratory syndrome. The precautions should include contact and airborne methods when dealing with any suspected cases, probable or the confirmed cases. Those suffering from respiratory illnesses or hypoxemia are at a higher risk of acquiring the virus through elective procedures,
