Jordanian doctor Maher Younis, head of the internal medicine department at Zarqa Governmental Hospital, said that it is an ordinary virus that affects the respiratory system, and that it can infect any person without showing any symptoms, continuing: “I got it and did not know at first because my health is good”, Noting that the effect of the virus can be difficult for those who have immune deficiency or chronic diseases such as diabetes, the elderly, children and pregnant women.
Yunus added, during an exclusive meeting with him via the Al-Arabiya and Al-Hadath channels, that the Corona virus does not transmit in the air, as some believe, but it is transmitted through the spray that exits from the infected nose or mouth, as it is transmitted through contact with surfaces, for example If a person touches the surface that an infected person has touched and then touches his nose, eyes, or mouth from here, the virus is transmitted. He continued: “The injured person must protect his surroundings and isolate immediately.”
The Jordanian doctor stressed that it is possible for a person to become infected with the Corona virus and survive without feeling, stressing the need to take all necessary precautions during the period of the spread of the virus, and to maintain personal hygiene continuously.
The new Corona virus causes panic in the world, as deaths accelerate among those who have it, and the number of people infected with it increases and the countries that report cases of infection.
According to the lengthy report published by the “Sky News” website, Arabia, because from 2010 to 2020, many epidemics spread, most notably new types of influenza, such as the Middle East coron and swine flu, and preceded them in the previous decade, bird flu, where it spread In the last decade, too, other epidemics, perhaps the most dangerous of which were the Ebola virus, which has spread to a number of African countries, and the Zika virus, which has spread to South America.
According to Sky News, before 2009, avian flu (2003) appeared and caused the death of about 400 people, and was preceded by the SARS virus (2002) that killed 800 people in the world, as the swine flu pandemic, H1N1, spread (H1N1In 2009, it was first discovered in Mexico in April of that year, before spreading to many countries of the world.
He continued: “According to the World Health Organization, swine flu is considered one of the most dangerous viruses, because it has the ability to change rapidly, to escape the formation of antibodies to it in the bodies it targets, as the virus modifies itself slightly every two to three years, and when the bodies that It targets it to create immunity to it, the virus mutates and is able to withstand the immune system, causing a “pandemic” or a pandemic sweeping the world every few years.
In June 2012, estimates were published through a study of a group of doctors, researchers, and agencies announcing the deaths of 280,000 people, including 201,000 deaths from respiratory causes, and 83,000 deaths from cardiovascular diseases, while the World Health Organization announced in the year 2010 that According to the World Health Organization, as of December 31, 2013, a young child named Emil Omono died in the village of Meliano, in Guinea, and his death was acquired Significantly more important when Emil was named the first patient for what was later known to be the worst spread of Ebola A in history.
The highly pathogenic Ebola virus spread rapidly across Guinea, to neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone, to be known as the “West Africa Ebola” outbreak, which nearly caused the economies of the three countries to collapse. During that year, about 6,000 people died from the virus.
In 2018, this time in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where more than 2,200 people lost their lives, out of nearly 3,300 confirmed cases, the epidemic struck again.
“Sky News” said that although Zika is not a deadly virus, but the World Health Organization has identified the virus and the resulting fever as an epidemic, given its relationship to congenital malformation in newborns, a condition that has come to be known as “microcephaly”, It is caused by the transmission of infection from the pregnant mother to the fetus.
The virus has spread twice in the past decade, the first in French Polynesia in 2013, the second in Brazil in 2015, and in 2016, it has been announced that there is no preventive treatment or vaccination against the Zika virus, which is spread by yellow fever mosquitoes.
In the second stage of the disease outbreak, the Zika virus began spreading in April of 2015, and in early 2016 the spread of the virus reached its highest levels in the history of the Americas, after which it spread to other countries of South America, Central America and the Caribbean, and on February 1, 2016 The World Health Organization declared a state of emergency at the global level due to this virus.
In 2012, the Corona virus, which came to be known as the “Respiratory Syndrome of the Middle East” or “Acute Respiratory Syndrome”, first appeared as the “New Corona Virus,” just as it is with the current Wuhan virus in China.
As of July 2015, cases of coronavirus associated with respiratory syndrome in the Middle East were reported in more than 21 countries.
According to the latest statistic published by the World Health Organization, on April 24, 2014, 254 confirmed cases were diagnosed in the world, of whom 93 died.
On December 31st, the first suspected case was reported to the World Health Organization, as the new corona virus or emerging corona virus, which became known as (2019-nCoV).
The first outbreak was at Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, before moving to Bangkok in Thailand, Tokyo in Japan and Seoul in South Korea, then in the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong on the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Macau, Everett, Vietnam, and Singapore .
Later, HIV infections were announced in Australia, Malaysia, Taiwan, the United States and France, and recently, a case of infection was announced in Germany, Sri Lanka, and Cambodia.
Documented symptoms included fever in 90 percent of cases, general weakness and dry cough in 80 percent, shortness of breath in 20 percent, and respiratory distress in 15 percent of cases.
So far, the number of people infected with the virus has reached more than 4,500, including 52 cases outside China, while the virus has killed 106 people, all in Wuhan, with the exception of one death in Beijing.
