THE GLOBAL CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK AND THE CREATION OF A NEW WORLD
COVID-19 will reshape our world, it is not sure when this outbreak will end up but it is sure that by the time it does, our world will look very different. The global world is experiencing the change because of the pandemic and it will result to create a new world. The novel coronavirus epidemic that started in Wuhan, China on December 8, 2019, has infected more people than the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) combined.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Global war
The COVID-19 crisis is creating a war-like’ situation for the global world as it requires the mobilization and direction of resources at unprecedented levels. Solidarity between countries and a readiness to make sacrifices for the common good are decisive. It is believed that the wars between the countries are won by negotiation, communication, and logistics, not by the means of harsh strategies or tactics. This seems true for coronavirus as well, the countries that will prove best in the communication towards citizens to give them all the precautionary measures will come out strongest among others because this outbreak or war will also end with effective communication with the citizens.
A public health emergency for the Global world
The Chinese authorities revealed that the outbreak was caused by a novel beta-coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV. This was soon found to be significantly genetically related to SARS-CoV and other bat coronaviruses. The initial cases were associated with a seafood market in Wuhan where live animals were sold. This suggested a possible animal reservoir for this virus and suggested zoonotic (animal to human) transmission. Later on, environmental samples obtained from this market were found to be positive for 2019-nCoV, strengthening the hypothesis that this is a zoonotic virus. However, whilst the virus was found to have originally started among infected animals, most of the subsequently reported cases were shown to be caused by human-to-human transmission. This clearly shows that the coronavirus will change the world. The people will reduce the eating of dead animals and other animals that create viruses. So, when the coronavirus will end from the global world it will create a new world with different rules and norms.
