CoronaVirus, as the name states, is a kind of virus. Virus are amazing structures, for they are neither living, nor dead. Viruses are exotic chemically designed weapons of nature, that become alive only when they find a host, which is what makes them so intriguing. Viruses have another aspect of surprise, rapid mutation and evolution. Viruses evolve extremely quickly which makes making medicines against them a difficult task. Corona Virus, is a specific type of virus that causes infection in both plants and animals, and causes respiratory problems in humans, which in rare cases, can become fatal. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs that are approved for prevention or treatment, which has been the prime reason of the current medical emergency.

Since there is no medicine present at the time to counter the virus, the best approach remains is spreading awareness amongst people. People are being made aware of protective measures like washing of hands regularly, covering mouth and nose by masks.
