The Gloomy in the Beginning of the Year of Rat

The cartoon of the Year of Rat

This opening of the first year of the Chinese zodiac cycle seems will be a historical year in Medical Microbiology.

We welcome to symbol of this year, Rat, but we have never ever welcome to the beautiful and powerful name, which is “Corona” virus.

It was not long ago, 2002, we were shocked about the corona virus that attack human upper respiratory, and this virus so easily roamed in the air to find the nice niche to grow, human respiratory tracts.

The severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak began in South China's Guangdong Province in November 2002.

There was 8000 people got infection and at least 750 people death. This disease spread through respiratory droplets and also sweat, urine, and feces.

Coronavirus is enveloped virions with the longest positive RNA genome. The surface of the envelope are glycoproteins.

Those glycoproteins have club-shaped and cling around the surface so that it looks like a “corona” or halo under the electron microscope. The glycoprotein functions are to bind to the host and fusion activity.

Normally, coronavirus infects the epithelial cells of respiratory tract of human. The reason is theses place is the optimum temperature for the coronavirus to grow, in the range 33 – 35 degree celsius.

Now, January 2020, and China got ready for the biggest festival to celebrate their New Year, Spring Festival.

In their faith, to welcome the new year, they decorate their house to against demons and evil, put calligraphy to welcome the fortune, and prepare the red envelopes to health of their children.

Those things seem do not help for this year. The new coronavirus from Wuhan have came over the China and now spread to other countries.

On January 27, the Day of Rat, which is the day that rats marry, the virus had killed at least 80 people in China and infected about 3000 people around the world and the most is in China.


The Rat looks mourn.

  25. Instructive entry, Evi, great contribution of information. You hope that the Chinese aurotities and the rest of the countries involved act responsibly in the "beginning" of a crisis that should not escalate for the good of all ...

  45. Un poco de miedo si que da ! Con la rapidez que va si que es preocupante ! Que los chinos construían un hospital en menos de 10 días esto semnifica que va muy en serio! Esperemos que todo acabe muy pronto y no sea un problema escapado del laboratorio queriendo o no ?
    Feliz día! 🤗🤗🤗

  54. É sempre triste, quando não se aprende com as lições do passado!...
    Os erros repetem-se... com consequências iguais ou piores...
    E sem querer desmerecer o número de vitimas... mas tal... enriquecerá alguém...
    Pelo que depreendi... este vírus tem uma taxa de mortalidade bem menor do que o SARS, embora se espalhe a um ritmo muito mais acelerado... e tem uma publicidade, nos meios de comunicação, bem maior à escala global... remetendo para uma vacinação, à escala praticamente mundial... quando for encontrada...
    Às vezes penso... em como estes acontecimentos, vêm tão a calhar... e mesmo a gosto, de quem esteja a pensar desencadear guerras económicas com a China... são coisas que me passam pela cabeça... assim como me passam pela cabeça... que hoje em dia... muitos destes vírus, que surgem do nada... não virão de um qualquer laboratório algures... pois infelizmente, nos dias que correm... a ética e a moral, já conheceram dias melhores... quando às vezes, nem os lideres de muitos países serão o melhor exemplo disso mesmo...
    As práticas de higiene não mudaram... os exóticos hábitos alimentares, também não terão sofrido grandes alterações ao longo dos tempos, a Oriente, desde o SARS... e de repente surge do nada, uma epidemia com uma tendência para a propagação em alta escala, de características bem agressivas... Estranho!... Muito estranho! E muito pouco natural... na minha opinião... dado que já não estamos na Idade Média, onde as práticas médicas eram quase inexistentes...
    Gostei imenso deste post, que nos esclareceu mais um pouco, sobre as características deste repentino vírus...
    Beijinhos! Continuação de uma óptima semana!
    Ana
