The Coronavirus is a dangerous virus that is spreading rapidly and killing many humans as it moves on from place to place.

School nurse Bobbie Winburn said the Coronavirus is dangerous.

“Coronavirus, the fact that it is so contagious among humans makes this virus very dangerous especially since the symptoms are so similar to the common cold in the beginning stages’” Winburn said.

As of Monday morning, 1,327 cases of Coronavirus were noted, including 11 in Stephens County, according to the Oklahoma Health Department website.

The virus originally started in China.

“Early on, many of the patients in the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China had some link to a large seafood and live animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread,” Winburn said. “Later, a growing number of patients reportedly did not have exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread.”

There is no proven cure for the coronavirus yet, however there might be one in the future. The best advice anyone could give you about the coronavirus is to wash your hands all the time and not touch your face.I hope the coronavirus outbreaks will soon end and less people die in it.Even if it did happen and you caught the coronavirus, it does not guaranteed death.
