Doctors say the coronavirus can cause infections in the lungs of humans and animals. The virus is spreading from person to person through a cold or flu-like cough. The main symptoms of the virus are dyspnea, fever, cough, pneumonia, etc. Moreover, one or more organs of the body may become inactive which can cause death.

The only way to prevent the virus is to stay away from infected people. Therefore, Chinese scientists have suggested seeking doctors if such symptoms occur in the human body.
