1.  229E  (α coronavirus) alpha
2.  NL63 (α coronavirus) alpha
3.  OC43 (β coronavirus) beta
4.  HKU1(β coronavirus) beta
    People around the world mainly get infected with human coronaviruses which are 229E, NL63, HKU1, and OC43.
  • Sometimes the Cov which infects animals get evolves and makes people sick and becomes Novel (New) human coronavirus. Three recent examples of this are SARS-CoV, 2019-nCoV, and MERS-CoV.

Other human coronaviruses

1.  MERS-CoV:-  The β coronavirus which causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)
2.  SARS-CoV:-  The β coronavirus which causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)

2. How it spreads 

1. The viruses can last on surfaces for few hours to several days (varies surface-to-surface)
2. Currently there is no available vaccine to prevent Cov disease 2019 (COVID-19).
3. The best preventive measure is to avoid being exposed to the virus.
4. The virus is transmitted mainly from person-to-person by respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
5. These droplets land on a healthy person's body or in the mouth, nose possibly inhaled by the lungs.
6. People who are in close contact with one another(minimum 6 feet)
7. It is also suggested that COVID-19 can be spread by those who are not showing symptoms.
8. The incubation periods range from 1 to 12.5 days but can be as long as 14 days

coronavirus end
when this pandemic end

4. How and when will this pandemic end?

  • According to Belgian virologist Guido Vanham (GV): It will probably never end, in the sense that this virus is clearly here to stay unless we eradicate it. And the only way to eradicate such a virus would be with a very effective vaccine that is delivered to every human being. We have done that with smallpox, but that's the only example - and that has taken many years.
  • According to a top Indian scientist, the coronavirus vaccine will be ready for mass use before 2021

  • It won't take 10 years to get a vaccine like that other vaccines do.
  • The only thing we can do is a countdown to a vaccine by following the preventive measures strictly.
