Coronavirus can be like seasonal flu!

Rural Bangladeshis brave it, townspeople also largely revert to old habits

News Report: As likely as not, the novel coronavirus that is still ravaging the planet can become one of seasonal flus which a nasal spray can control and cold cures can cure. A latest such indication is latent in a World Health Organization (WHO) executive's observations on the metamorphic destiny of the current pandemic while, of late, two countries claimed advances in inventing nasal spray as a substitute for vaccines. The potential good news came while hordes of medical scientists, virologists and medical multinationals are engrossed in evolving, doing human trials and manufacturing vaccines while plutocrats in rich countries advance booking of the innoculates by spending billions of dollars. Again China broke the news of making anti-corona nasal spray, and Australia claimed Tuesday to have evolved nasal spray the sniffing up of which could check over 90 percent of covid-19 affliction in a patient. While winter is in the offing and the western countries are gearing up for combat against a second wave of transmission in the 'flu season', World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge is not ruling out the possibility that the coronavirus can become a seasonal infection. He in an interview with TASS in Moscow on Monday underlined that coronaviruses belong to the same group as influenza viruses. “So, in that sense it could become seasonal,” he said. “My principle is, because I am an optimist, I hope for the best, but I prepare for the worst.” In Bangladesh, villagers in rural areas brave it and townspeople, particularly the commoners, are also largely reverting to old habits. "No corona in villages," said a number of rural correspondents. Many even in the capital city, Dhaka, are not using facemasks and not hand-washing either, although there has been alert from government high quarters and medical experts about a resurgence. The country still counts moderately high rates of infection and death from the virus. In late December 2019, Chinese officials informed the World Health Organization (WHO) about the outbreak of a previously unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, in central China. Since then, cases of the novel coronavirus – named COVID-19 by the WHO – have been reported in every corner of the world. On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. According to the latest statistics, over 32,800,000 people have been infected worldwide and one million deaths have been reported. Reports say the novel coronavirus or covid-19, the deadliest one since the 1918 Spanish flu that took 50 million lives, is one of the animal flus in the genotype SARS or severe acute respiratory syndrome. SARS-CoV, the virus that caused SARS, was first identified in 2003. MERS-CoV, the virus that caused Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), was first identified in 2012. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was identified in 2019 and continued afflicting mankind. With agency inputs
