Coronaviruses are nothing new. First discovered in the 1960s, this family of viruses could be found in animals like bats and camels. Typically, animal to human transmission did not occur; however, there have been six strains which are known to be transmitted in this manner. These include SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV.
First reported in late 2019, the COVID-19 virus is a respiratory illness which is believed to have originated in Wuhan, China. In the following couple of months, the Coronavirus quickly spread around the globe. As of mid-May of this year, there have been over 4.3 million confirmed cases and nearly 294,000 deaths. Over 83,000 of those deaths have occurred in the United States.
It has been determined that while it is a different strain, this Coronavirus is the same species as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), which caused a global outbreak in 2003.
COVID-19 is considered to be highly contagious and commonly spread by sneezing, coughing, or contact with contaminated surfaces or an infected person. To combat the spread of the virus, many public facilities are turning to Coronavirus cleaning and sanitization companies for thorough disinfecting and sanitizing services.
