Panicking about the coronavirus pandemic? Are you safe or not? When will life get back to normal? How many days do you still need to stay isolated? Is this outbreak the same as the year 1918’s flu outbreak? Will it subside easily? At what stage the coronavirus vaccine is now? What should I do to stay safe?
All these questions are revolving around your mind. Every morning you get the number of registered cases increasing. And in some countries the death roll too! In this serious condition of pandemic around the world, how to make sure you are safe?
The government has already rolled out the coronavirus precautions. All you need to do is follow them. As far as numbers are concerned as of 20th March 2020, the cases registered are around 250,618. And deaths are recorded at 10,254.
It feels achy to see the numbers increasing and we couldn’t do anything!
Okay! There’s nothing we can’t do. Doctors and specialists are doing their part of the job by trying to get the vaccination to slow down or eradicate the pandemic. As a true citizen, we should also follow the instructions advised by the government.
We won’t keep you in the dark, to be honest, there is still no coronavirus treatment. Everything is in progress! Doctors in pharmaceutical industries are putting all efforts into getting the vaccine ASAP!
The first human trial of the coronavirus vaccine has been done in the U.S. The trial isn’t the sign of the vaccine getting discovered. It is just a Phase1 trial to see whether the vaccine is safe and evokes the immune system. According to the scientists, who are working on the vaccines, it will still take around 12 to 18 months to get ready to be vaccinated to people around the world.
Yes! You heard it right. Whoever or whichever country discovers the vaccine will provide it to the whole world, i.e., 7.8 billion people.
Till the vaccine is discovered, you can’t sit idly (with the panic in mind and fear in the heart). WHO (World Health Organization) has rolled out a few rules or you can say safety measures that you need to follow for your own good!
It is known that COVID-19 is a contagious disease and will spread with physical contact. It started with China and now every single country of the world is facing it! The USA has recently reported an increase in cases in the past few days. Iran is reporting deaths every 10 minutes.
Is it only due to no vaccination available? No, it is because of the negligence of the people around the world.
Due to the spread of the virus, many major events have been postponed or canceled. And the main focus is to make people safe and stop the spread of the disease.
The Symptoms of The Coronavirus, According To WHO are:
– difficulty breathing (severe cases)

How is the Vaccine Prepared!
Now let’s see how the vaccine is made. (This is raw information and just for information.)
The novel virus belongs to the coronavirus family and there is an emerging and major outbreak in this respiratory disease. This is the reason it is called SARS-CoV-2.
When the viruses enter the body, they are introduced to the body’s defense system and learns how to fight it. Then if those viruses ever enter the body again, they will automatically fight.
Normally the vaccines are made using the original virus. Many vaccinations are made with this approach. But the vaccine for coronavirus is made using the new method ‘plug and play’ because the genetic code of the virus SARS-COV-2 is known.
Scientists say, “Everything is new about this vaccine.” It is a total trial and error kind of thing.
Which Countries are Trying to Make a Vaccine?
Just a few days ago, WHO declared that there are 20 corona vaccines that are in development in the world. And three of the countries have registered them for the first human trial. The countries are the U.S., Europe, and China.
