HOW DID THIS NEW CORONAVIRUS COME TO HUMANS?
COVID-19 appeared in Wuhan, a city of China, in December 2019.

HOW DOES THE NEW CORONAVIRUS SPREAD?
As of now, researchers know that the new coronavirus is spread through droplets related into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The droplets generally do not travel more than a few feet, and they full to the ground in a few seconds – this is why social and physical distancing is effective and plays an important role in preventing the spread.
VACCINE OF CORONA
friends, till now, science has not been able to find a definite solution to save us from the Corona pandemic, neither has a vaccine been developed. In such a situation, it is very natural to get worried. However the many countries are using different medicine, to prevent their citizens from Corona like in America redeliver, and in India, hydroxychloroquine and plasma therapy also play an important role to prevent citizens from Corona but it has a limitation.
In our country(INDIA) Prime Minister asked citizens to make use of is the ‘Aarogya Setu’ app, which has been developed by the government to deal with the ongoing coronavirus crisis, within days of its launch, the Healthcare app garnered over 5,00,000 downloads on devices.

EFFECT ON ECONOMICS
There are several channels through which the COVID-19 outbreak may affect the Indian economy of which the description of the supply chain is the major one. job loss is on the rise along with the slowdown in manufacturing and service activities. Workers are back to their home in Faraway places, thereby leaving the coming harvest in uncertainty. Lack of order may eventually lead to Massive trade contraction. Further fall in Indian rupee is not remote. besides, destruction in air travel, fall in travel and tourism, contraction in outdoor entertainment industries rise in bankruptcy and NPAs. While this is short- term effects, rise in death and destabilization, sectors, and economics via trade and production linkage. Besides it, migrant workers don’t want to come again to a big city to work. They only want to live with their family in the village. So it is a very critical problem and a great loss of the country.
COVID – 19 crisis also provide opportunities. countries may witness better Healthcare – both management and facilities. New social and behavioral norms “social distancing”, “wearing a mask”, “maintaining hygiene”, etc. are the new normal, and countries have to adjust with such new normal amid the pandemic. The one good and positive thing for India is that the recovery rate of Corona is also increasing. And death rate is also low than the other country complicated disease in continuation of the pandemic etc, cannot be ruled out. As a result, socks can file Over The Other.
