The coronaviruses are a group of viruses that are responsible for causing the fatal diseases SARS and MERS. A variant of SARS, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, is also caused by the coronavirus. The virus responsible for the death of close to 300 South Korean tourists was recently identified as a coronavirus, and it is estimated that over half of all cases worldwide of these two coronaviruses are caused by the coronavirus.
The coronaviruses are classified into two major groups: SARS-CoV, which cause SARS, and MERS-CoV. The former is responsible for the deaths in China of close to five thousand people, whereas the latter killed more than four hundred people in South Korea. The symptoms of COV and MERS are very similar, and doctors are concerned that if this virus was to spread around the world, then many more people would contract the disease. In addition, the symptoms of COV and MERS may become serious because of the similarity between these viruses.
The SARS virus causes a fever, cough and breathing difficulties, and the majority of sufferers will experience vomiting and diarrhea. However, patients can also develop arthritis, liver problems and kidney failure, among other illnesses. As with COV, those who have had a direct contact with a SARS patient are at an even higher risk of contracting COV.
The main difference between the SARS virus and the COV virus is that the former has not yet developed a vaccine, although scientists are working on developing one. Although scientists know that COV and MERS can be transmitted from person to person, they have no way of telling that person will pass on the virus to whom.
Although there are many theories as to how the virus gets from person to person, scientists have ruled out many possibilities, such as the possibility that the virus could be airborne or that it could be airborne transmission. They have also ruled out the possibility that the virus can travel from the lungs to the bloodstream in humans.
There is no way to confirm whether the virus’s ability to live in bodily fluids such as saliva or semen and its ability to infect lungs are related, although scientists are researching whether there is a genetic connection between the virus and asthma. While there is no evidence so far to suggest a relationship between the virus and the lungs’ ability to transport oxygen, scientists do believe that the lungs may be a source of the virus’s ability to infect the lungs.
As scientists continue to study the virus, they will need to look at several different theories in order to explain the cause of the disease and its spread. One theory is that the virus spreads through coughing and sneezing. If they determine that the virus is transmitted through coughing, then they will also have to determine the mechanisms by which the virus enters the body and what exactly causes coughing to trigger the onset of the symptoms.
Other theories are based on the idea that the virus spreads through contact with an infected object that has had contact with the virus, and that the virus then lives in the body due to a protein found on the object’s surface. The presence of the virus may lead to infection of the lungs and other organs, or it may lead to infections that occur in the respiratory system.
Some scientists believe that the virus travels down the respiratory tract to reach the lungs, where it remains in the body, but it is not as contagious as it is in the throat. It may not remain in the lungs and begin to replicate until it can infect the bloodstream. This is believed to be how some of the symptoms of SARS are diagnosed, since the symptoms in the throat can only be detected through biopsy.
A recent study, however, indicates that there may be a genetic connection between the SARS virus and the coronavirus, since both viruses have been found to carry genes related to the H9 toxin that causes SARS. Although the virus may not lead to the same symptoms in all patients, this is an important development, especially since the toxin that causes SARS cannot be transmitted through air and does not have any genetic material that can be transferred through coughing or sneezing. The ability to pass the virus via coughing is important for researchers who are investigating the virus’s causes and for doctors who are looking to treat patients with SARS.
Although more research needs to be done to determine the precise cause of lung disease associated with the coronavirus, more medical professionals are beginning to make connections between the virus and other diseases, such as AIDS. Scientists are still trying to identify the mechanism by which the virus triggers the immune system to attack the cells of the immune system and the brain and is able to affect other organs. In addition, more research is being done to identify the genes that allow the virus to cause infection of cells in other organs, including the brain and the kidneys.
