Coronavirus News

The 2019 to 2020 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), where severe body intoxication and problems with the respiratory and digestive systems can occur.

While the earliest signs of this recent strain of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) trace back to late December 2019 in the Hubei province of China in the city of Wuhan, the virus has since become an invisible threat shared across geographical, political and cultural boundaries.

A coronavirus is a virus that initially transfers from animals to humans, causing illnesses from the common cold to more severe diseases, such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV). While not as deadly as the 2002 to 2003 SARS outbreak on a per-case basis, COVID-19 (the disease produced by the virus) is much more infectious. It poses a particular threat to older people and individuals with preexisting immuno-compromised conditions.  

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, global financial markets, including the cryptocurrency sector, have experienced significant declines. The outbreak has led to widespread concerns, with numerous confirmed cases and a considerable number of reported deaths worldwide. Governments are tirelessly working to prevent the collapse of healthcare systems by implementing various measures. 

At Cointelegraph, we are closely monitoring the pandemic and its effects on technology, society and political landscapes.
