More than 1,100 people have died after an outbreak of coronovirus in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, after that World Health Organisation has declared a global health emergency in World. The Corona Virus is an enveloped single-stranded RNA virus belonging to the family Coronaviridae. It causes a variety of diseases in mammals and birds but, in the last few decades, has shown to be capable of infecting humans as well. The outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003 and, more recently, Middle-East respiratory syndrome (MERS) has demonstrated the lethality of CoVs when they cross the species barrier and infect humans. News reports of patients with an unknown pneumonia were first identified on 31st December with the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission. On 1st January 2020, the seafood market was closed and decontaminated while countries with travel links to Wuhan went on high alert for potential travelers with unexplained respiratory disease.
