UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — We are constantly updating all the important statistics regarding the Novel Coronavirus. These include the number of confirmed cases and recovered, and each country’s map of confirmed and suspected cases.
Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, the viruses cause respiratory infections – including the common cold – which are typically mild. Rarer forms such as SARS, MERS and the novel coronavirus causing the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak can be lethal.
In cows and pigs coronaviruses cause diarrhea. In chickens they cause an upper respiratory disease. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs that are approved for prevention or treatment.
