Review on Reasons for the Spread of Corona Virus

Nagham Mahmood Aljamali, Hasaneen Kudhair Abdullabass, Imad Kareem Alwan Alsabri, Nemah Sahib Muhammed Husien, Ahmed Adnan Abdul Hussein, Wisam Hassan Ali Alfartosi


This review discussed causes of corona virus spread from past to present time, This revision touched upon the reason for the emergence of this virus since the past decades, then it evolved to the current time, the reason for its transmission, how it began to appear, its symptoms and its diagnosis, and the first country in which this virus spread, then spread to neighboring countries and its apparent symptoms, also mentioned a description of some of the tests used to diagnose the virus in infected and suspected persons and some instructions and recommendations from the World Health Organization to reduce infection with the virus and avoid the spread of infection and follow healthy ways to get rid of the global epidemic, Be cautious of crowded places and the use of tissue paper constantly and continuous disposal of waste, especially hospital waste through its own containers and the use of means and landfills for waste in order to avoid the spread of epidemics.
