The Chinese virus, Wuhan Corona Virus
What is Wu-Han Corona?
The Chinese virus, Wuhan corona virus, has been named as the number one cause of SARS or severe acute respiratory syndrome. The virus has been around for about twenty years. Wuhan corona virus causes a serious illness in chickens. The virus has been labeled as a type of Chicken Pox, since it can also affect people. The symptoms of this illness include a high fever, lethargy, vomiting and diarrhea.
Coronaviruses are viruses which are highly contagious. The virus that causes chicken diseases is a type of cold virus. This virus can cause more than twenty different illnesses. Among these, there is one illness that affects chickens and this is referred to as Wuchen-Corona Virus, or nukes. Old people and those with underlying medical conditions such as lung or heart disease seem to be in greater danger for getting more serious consequences from Wukes.
The most common illness that Wuchen-Corona Virus infects is SARS. It is a respiratory infection caused by the same virus that causes cold sores. In case a person is infected by the corona virus and becomes sick, they are prone to become inflamed and cough uncontrollably for weeks. A SARS victim becomes severely debilitated in no time and cannot eat or drink on their own.
This sick chicken virus affects more than half of the world’s chicken population every year. When the SARS virus affects humans, it causes the same symptoms as a common cold: a runny nose, cough and sore throat. Wuchen-Corona virus affects the immune system of humans, rendering them prone to more serious diseases such as pneumonia, arthritis, HIV and the AIDS.
There are a number of ways in which the virus is spread. The virus can be transmitted through aerosols, including cigarette smoke and vehicle exhaust. Other ways include contact with the respiratory secretions of an infected bird and by direct contact with infected human saliva. The sick chicken virus has been linked to thousands of sick chicken deaths in the past few years.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and other organizations highly recommend that all individuals living in close proximity with sick chickens should isolate themselves from each other. The virus spreads through bodily fluids and can easily travel through air. When a sick chicken spreads the virus to others, it infects them too. Hence, when sick chickens fight with each other and roam around, the virus infects everyone in its path, including humans.
